WIP Wednesday #2

Yay for WIP Wednesday (hosted by freshly pieced)!  I really love having the opportunity to keep track of all of the projects I have going on, and encouraging myself to check stuff off!

I met one major goal this week (it was also my One Thing, One Week Challenge): I finished the quilt top for my Project Modern 2 quilt!   Here is just a sneak peek (I’ll post pics of the whole thing once it’s completed and I’ve sent my pictures to the MQG):

2.  I also finished my Christmas ornaments.  This wasn’t a sewing project, but I wanted to make it a priority all the same.

I decoupaged paper onto wooden blocks after I painted the edges of the blocks gold or silver.   They look old and folksy – I love ’em!  I need to get an “H” for baby-to-be, but I’m leaving that for future Jenna to deal with next Christmas.

Those are my two completed tasks.  Still to go are a couple of things I mentioned last week:

1. Alison’s Birthday Pillow Covers:  I haven’t cut any fabric yet, but I did sketch out my patterns!

2. Christmas Sweater Pillow Covers: no progress

Then I came up with a couple of new project ideas:

1.  One last Valentine’s Day pillow inspired by this picture from Better Homes and Gardens:

2.  A quilt using these fabrics (I think) for baby-to-be.  I love how bright, lime green looks with the deeper teals.  It’s one of my favorite color pairings right now!   And since baby will be living on a little blanket in the middle of the living room for quite some time, I might as well make something that jives with the house and makes me smile.

So in summary that is:

Projects Completed: 2 (well… I completed the *top* of the red quilt.  Still have to make a back, baste, quilt, bind… <sigh>).

Projects in Progress: 4

See you next time!  xoxo
