WIP Wednesday - The last South Bend Edition :)

*** NOTE - If you are looking for the Fat Quarter Shop Sponsor Giveaway of Pat Bravo Nature Elements Fat Quarter Bundle you will find it by clicking here :)

I am happy to say, that I am "on schedule" for my WIP to be completed in South Bend.  (Which is good as I am moving this weekend :)  I have been going crazy gang busters to get everything squared away so I am pretty excited to have it all almost all done :)

After 7-8ish hours of quilting yesterday, I can say I am almost done with this project.  Ya, I am showing the back as I can't show the front yet :)  All that is left is to bind it (today's project) and then it moves from WIP to Completed, Yippee Skippee!!!

I went for a flower, leaf, and swirl pattern.  I did it in a rather small size, especially compared to the size of the quilt :)  (75 x 75).  So ya, my shoulders are a little sore this morning :)

Yesterday we got about half way finished with Teacher's gifts :)  We plan to finish them when the kids get home from school and hopefully I will be able post the completions tomorrow.  

And that is it for the South Bend WIP!!!!   Yippee Skippee!!!  

So now, it's on to thinking about Cedar City WIP's - I won't have my sewing machine for a few weeks as it will be on the moving truck (this very well might kill me :)  So my first WIP will be to get my new sewing room painted and ready to welcome all of its lovely fabric goodness home.  This is the color I choose, What do you think??

Pin It!


  1. Love the color - it will show off any quilts that you hang up, to perfection! Good luck and God's blessings for a safe trip to your new home!
