WIP Wednesday

25 Apr

I think knowing I was going to do this today pushed me to make progress on some of my sewing projects. While it may not seem like a lot, the fact that I manage to get anything done with working and raising 2 small boys is a miracle to me!

The front cover to my travel sewing kit is all quilted and ready to be put together, well, actually I still need to cut the pieces out for the rest of it. At least this part is done! I really like the way the hand quilting came out and it makes me super excited to get started on my lap quilt!

Last night I started to add the gray border to some of the diamonds and begin piecing them together. That’s my finished stack of diamonds behind. I figure this way I won’t get bored and seeing it grow will push me to keep going. Hexi piecing is tedious work! That’s all I have for today. Hopefully next week I’ll be able to show a completed travel sewing kit and a completed granny square quilt top! Happy Hump Day!

      Thanks! Now I just need to start cutting the rest of the fabric up for it, hopefully that doesn’t take me too long to get to…

    I’m looking forward to seeing your completed sewing kit.I really like the way the hand quilting turned out. I really enjoy working on hexies but it can drag on if it’s a large project. Keep up the great work.

      Thank you! I know what you mean about the hexies, they really do take a long time to make!
