WIP Wednesday Week 4 1/25/12

This week was a busy one! I spent a lot of time on homework and not a lot of time on sewing, but still found some time to get to the studio on the weekend. We celebrated Mikaela's 1st Birthday on Sat. night with family and friends. We tried for a nice family picture, but it just wasn't meant to be. This was just before she stuck her foot in the cake and almost lit her foot on file with the candle.

Friday night after everyone went to bed, I loaded this quilt on the frame for my friend Cindy. She is making it for an auction in less than 2 weeks time, so I offered to quilt it for her. It quilted up so nicely! I just love to quilt when they turn out so pretty.

The blocks were quick and easy for her and she's going to put chenille around the borders.

She even pieced the backing.

Last night I had all a bit of time to do my own sewing, so I set out to put together this bag. I turned out really cute and I think it will be just the perfect size. I used the winding ways fabric and I was motivated enough to pull out my batik stash that I want to use for a Winding Ways quilt.

Monday I put a growth chart on the frame and quilted it and got the binding on last night, but my computer was being funny, so I hope it works tonight to upload pictures on it. So all in all a productive week!
