WIP Wednesday - April 3, 2013

I have several WIPs this week, unfortunately there hasn't been much progress on any of them!

My largest ongoing project is the Philippians 4:8 Wall Hanging I am making with printed burlap and Urban Mod by AGF. 

I haven't progressed very much since my post about it last Wednesday. I still haven't even decided if I am finished with the first block. I can't decide if I want to make the above block wider, or just start on the next one. I was out of town over the weekend... And I got distracted by another WIP... 

On Monday I was looking around the living room and thinking I am ready for Spring, but I need some Spring decorations to brighten it up. 

I bought some PB&J by BasicGrey for Moda a few weeks ago when I stopped by a LQS. 

Honestly I had seen this fabric online, but it didn't stand out to me at all, but when I saw it at the LQS I fell in love. I had no idea what I was going to do with it, but bought a charm pack and a couple of fat quarters. 

I know my pictures aren't the greatest, but once I saw this fabric close up and felt it, I just wanted to eat LOL. 

I decided that a table runner for the coffee table and a few pillows for the couch would do the trick. I have been rather busy with work and the kids so I haven't made as much progress I had hoped.

I still have my SkillBuilders BOMs that I am working on, again not much  progress since the last time I posted about them. I have only finished piecing the first 4, two more came out almost two weeks ago, so I need piece those, as well as quilt them. 

The other project I need to finish up are these appliqued onesies. I started making them for my nephew and a friends baby back in August... Yes, back in August. I got 6 months done for each of them and went ahead and gave those to their mommies. Now I really need to get the other ones made and given to them!!! I really should do that ASAP. 

Oh yes, I almost forgot... I won a fabric giveaway last week!!! I got the email on Friday. Thank you Ashley from Cherished Bliss and Southern Fabric for the Charm Packs of Marmelade and Happy Go Lucky!

  1. I really like this block, I think it has perfect proportions. Curious to see how you continue.

    1. Thank you. I have decided to leave it as is, at least for now and move on to the next block.

  2. Oh my gosh, the PB&J fabric does look much better in your picture. That table runner is going to be gorgeous!!

    1. The main reason I wish I had an LQS much closer to me is because fabrics look so different "in person" than online. I totally would have passed up this fabric... then again my hubby thinks that's a good thing :)

  3. Lucky you to win fabric!! What are you going to make? Look forward to the runner and pillows--I love the PB&J line. It's on my wish list :)

    1. I haven't decided what I shall do with the fabric I won. I do love both of the fabrics though.

  4. The table runner looks great in those fabrics. I agree I like seeing fabric in person!
