WIP Wednesday - Week 23 - 6.6.12

This has been one of the most productive weeks in the last two months for me! I've gotten a lot accomplished and feel great about where I'm headed. Saturday I quilted two quilts for my friend Emilee. They both turned out great and I really enjoyed quilting them. I absolutely love the carpenter star. The colors are fabulous and the piecing amazing. It's 34" square.

On Sunday I spent quite a bit of time putting wall hanging sleeves and binding on 5 small wall hanging/table toppers. I've had these quilted for a month or more, even had the binding cut and they were squared up, I just had to sew it on. I'm so glad to have some hand work to do again, but now it's so nice I hardly spend any breaks inside sewing.

I made this one to be a little table topper.

This one is probably my favorite. I used it to try a bunch of different quilting patterns on. It's a bit small for doing so much, but it was fun playing with the designs from the Pajama Quilter.

I did get a sample to make for Club Sew on Friday night. I worked on it both Mon. and Tues. night. It's a little mesh bag from the Zip It pattern. It was really quite easy, but had to pick up bias binding to finish it.

When I stopped at the shop on Tues. night, Tammy had a few more samples for me to make, so last night after Mikaela went to bed, I cut out this little Baguette. It's from Atkinson Designs and the front is vinyl. It turned out so cute and I can't wait to make another one with the mesh.

On Sunday I also made these three little stuffed dolls for Mikaela. They were from  a panel my mom had cut out. I just had to sew them together and stuff. They were easy and she loves playing with them. I also finished a bag for my MIL and fixed Paul's jeans, so I had a very productive week!
