Work in Progress #8

I had to miss out on last week, due to everyone in my family getting an end-of-winter cold.  But I’ve made up for it all this week with many accomplishments!  Here we go, linking up with freshly pieced!

The biggest thing I’ve got “in progress” is my Party Time Excellent quilt.  It’s loaded up into ol’ Kenny and I hope to make a big dent in the quilting tomorrow.   I really want to get this one done before the baby comes so that I can take it with me to the hospital.  It was nice birthing Lloyd under my husband’s old freebie fleece blanket from his work, but a handmade quilt by-me for-me would be sweeter : )

The other “in progress” I’ve got is a my first ever mug rug!  I’m so happy to have joined the brand-new Ann Arbor Modern Quilt Guild. I’m sad that I won’t be able to attend the next couple of meetings and get-togethers, but I want to remain active in the group remotely.  For the next meeting we were supposed to engage in a mug rug swap, so I’m hoping to make one and mail it to a fellow member so that at least I can gift my buddies a little something.

Those are my main WIPs, but let me take a moment to share two completed projects!

My Henry Quilt is done (more on that HERE):

And I made myself a little nursing cover (using this tutorial, although I made mine smaller):

Yay for not having to show my boobs to elderly family members and the community in general!

That’s all I’ve got.  Thanks for stopping by and please check out the other WIPs!

  1. Looks like you’re making some serious progress, that’s great! Your nursing cover looks great, and so does your Henry quilt – wow!

  2. Love those HSTs! I really like how you rounded your corners too, such a nice touch!

  3. All of your progress looks great and I hope you can finish the quilt before the baby comes too. The nursing cover is really nice and will be so nice when the time comes. Good luck!

  4. All of your progress looks great. And I’m totally cracking up at your comments about showing boobs to elderly family members! I hated that part about nursing. Love the cover you made, I totally should have done that.

  5. I love your Henry quilt, so cute! And the nursing cover will work out very useful, I think my PILs would have loved if I’d had one of those!

  7. Love your completed Henry quilt! Great job.
