WIP Wednesday: Storybook Quilt Progress

It feels good to get back into a rhythm, after the crazy holiday season. I missed linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced for WIP Wednesday (it really keeps my on track).  I started working on two  matching twin sized quilts after Christmas, trying to use up some "orphaned" blocks. I'm pretty happy with how the first quilt is turning out.

I feel like I need one more embroidered block. I love the design process. Anyway here are my stats for the week.

In-process: (5)
Hip to be Square FMQ sampler (still at 14 out of 30 blocks quilted)
Purple heart wall hanging ( needs borders, backing, quilting and binding)
Expanding Possibilities quilt (needs backing, quilting and binding)
Storybook quilt # 1 -  Blocks are being pieced
Storybook quilt # 2 - Embroidered blocks waiting to be pieced

New projects in the cue to start: (3)
FLMQG solids challenge crib quilt (Not started)
New Wave quilt (not started)
Friend's baby quilt - fabric picked out!

Finished (0)

I'm linking up with Freshly Pieced for WIP Wednesday!

Color Me Quilty!



  1. Pat the quilts you are working on are looking amazing! The embroidery is great!

  2. I really love the combination of embroidered blocks and pieced blocks! They're so lovely. I especially like the block with the book and all the wonderful things coming out of it. That's how I've always felt about books!

  3. Those embroidered blocks are stunning - did you work from a pattern to make them or are they entirely original? Are you doing them by hand? They're all impressive, but I especially love the book one with the magic coming off the pages :-)

  4. Wow, this will be a stunning quilt! I absolutely love the embroidery! And I think yes, it could use another embroidery block in the bottom row...

  5. That is going to be one fabulous quilt :)

  6. I really like the first. How do you do? I love the color purple!

  7. That embroidery is beautiful! This is going to be a gorgeous quilt!

  8. Gorgeous fabrics and amazing embroidery designs. Where is the book with the magic shooting out of it from?

  9. PS. I saw you asking about the Horizon 7700 on another blog. I have one and L-O-V-E it. My previous machine was holding my creativity back it terms of what it could handle. Now "my Abby" (yes I know, naming your machine is a little out there) can do anything my head comes up with.
