WIP Wednesday

I have a few things on the go right now that I can't post about without ruining surprises.

There's a quilt waiting to be quilted that I really should finish up. This is the first time that I have basted & abanded, I usually like to start quilting right away. Maybe with a to do list so long, I am trying to spread out a little bit. It will be straight line quilted so I'm not worried about being able to finish it in time anyway. Photos to come after Christmas!

Then we have this one from my last post, still waiting on my design wall... For progress

I can show you this pillow! It will be a before Christmas gift for someone. I used the Kona charcoal, eggplant & olive that was added into the Aviary 2 quilt above. I love them together & it should suit it's new owner just fine (hopefully!) This was my first time hiding a zipper this way (in behind that strip down the middle) You can't feel it with your face, but I think I still prefer an invisible zip in the bottom. I wasn't sure how to do that with the binding around the pillow though (first time doing that too!) Okay, I also didn't have an invisible zip & wanted to use what I had on hand.

Lastly, a work in progress that will be played with later today. I picked up a cute Keyka Lou pattern on sale last week with a plan, to make two 'wallets' for two specific people, for a very specific purpose. Well, after trying it out...the list has now grown. So far I plan to make FOUR more. I can't say that number won't increase at a later date though. They are *really* cute!

  9. Thank you to all the comments left on this post! I have to figure out how to change my set up so I can email ppl back directly. (shoot me a msg if you know an easy way to do this as I took a quick look & could not figure it out!)
    I was surprised by how much I love that peeps fabric, the blue pops so nicely on the black. I bought it in pink too, but it's just not as good.
    Still LOVE that Aviary on my design wall!
