Work In Progress Wednesday

**NOTE - If you are looking for the Sweetwater Hometown Giveaway sponsored by Burgundy Buttons you can find it here :)

Alright, thanks to my biggest WIP (The soon to be delivery of our 5 child) I feel like it is  crunch time.  I have all of these commitments I need to keep and time is winding down until the wee one arrives.  Luckily, this last week was super productive as far as organizing, prioritizing, and cranking out some of those commitments.  However, I can't show most of any of it as it is all being saved for future posts (mostly on other's blogs :)

You know that song from Oklahoma "I'm Just A Girl Who Can't Say No".  Well that is me, not with kissing, but with taking on more quilting commitments.  I just have so much fun with challenges, guest posts, and designing, how can I pass any of them up.  I know that I am stretching myself thinner each time but I just can't help it, I can't say no :)

But, with all that said, I feel like this weekend really got me more on top of everything and hopefully, if I can keep the pace for a few more days, I will be ready to have the baby without any major concerns of missing any deadlines.

So . . . What can I show you for this weeks Work In Progress . . .

First off, I sewed my 2 patches into 4 patches for my hugs and kisses quilt.  This was mostly due to the need of having all of my pins back, I was going nuts only having 1/4 of them available :)

Second, I pulled out these lovelies from the Block-A-Palooza that I bombed out of.  I figured they would work perfect for the 100 Quilts for Kids Campaign  that Kate is putting on.  They are going to be collecting some at the Sewing Summit so I am hoping to have it finished by then :)

And lastly, I made a tiny bit more progress on my own individual STARS for the STARS Quilt-A-Long.  I have a feeling the layout post (set for Friday) will be digital as I don't see myself getting these all done by Friday.  Unfortunately, as much as I hate it, these just can't be top priority right now.  But hopefully, soon, very soon.    What is a girl to do??

Pin It!


  1. wow - what alot going, and a baby too! Good luck!!

  2. You must be in nesting mode being so busy.

  3. You are super busy! I miss that urge you get during nesting. Good luck with everything!

  4. Gosh you're busy! Good luck with everything!

  5. Wow, I am IMPRESSED that you can do all of this while pregnant. And I know exactly what you mean about not being able to say no. I genuinely want to do all of this stuff, so I try - even if I know I don't really have time!

    The 100 Quilts project is a great use for your Blockapalooza blocks. And your Stars QA blocks are just beautiful. Thanks for linking up to WIP Wednesday, and good luck with everything!

  6. I also find I cannot say NO to challenges sew I am now working on about 10 different ones and I do want to get into my shed and do some leadlight too.
    No hurry for the final set of the stars I am still on 5.

  7. Wow! I am impressed too! Good luck with your delivery!! Hope it goes super easy and that you have a super happy new baby!! :)

  8. I was in no mood (or condition) to do much quilting with the last pregnancy, so I commend you! Sending positive labor vibes your way for a smooth birth! :)

  9. Oh man, I'm cool with you not getting the layout post up until later. I just finished block 6 today! But I forgot to take a shot of them before I started sewing my blocks all together :(

    Good for you keeping busy! I know so many people who think being pregnant is reason to eat unhealthy and be lazy. Hurray overzealous pregnant women!

  10. love your fabrics for the stars QAL!


Thank you so much for your sweet comments. I just love hearing from you!!
Have a Happy Quilting Day :)
