WIP Wednesday - Catching up on BOMs

We drove to the city yesterday to spend the night and check on the kitties.  My daughter and I are also planning on getting pedicures today because I'm flying to Jersey City on Tuesday next week for work and my feet look terrible after 10 days spent in flip-flops!

While I'm here, I've been catching up on my blog reading and decided to write a WIP Wednesday post!  This week, I completed my August Schnibble top - Dimestore.  You can read about it here.  I started quilting the Happy Weekender top which is going to be my boss' 50th birthday present. 

I also got totally inspired by the wonderful Sinta who blogs at Pink Pincushion.  Sinta hosts a great quilt-along called BOM Rehab where participants of BOM programs work on long forgotten blocks.  I didn't  "officially" participate in Sinta's quilt along this week but I decided to put together the last 5 blocks of the Fat Quarter Shop Designer Mystery BOM from 2010!  Yes - 2010!


First, here is block 8 - Welcome to our House:

Then, there was block 9 - Matching Ornaments:

Designed by Joanna Figueroa (www.figtreequilts.com)

Here is block 10 - All Tied Up With Pretty Red Tinsel:

Designed by Polly Minick and Laurie Simpson (www.minickandsimpson.com)

This is block 11 - The Basket of Good Cheer:

Designed by Anne Sutton (www.bunnyhilldesigns.com)

And finally, this is block 12 - The Final Touch:

Designed by Sherri Falls (www.thisandthatpatterns.com)

And here they all are ready for me to open the finishing kit and sew these babies together:


So I don't have any completions this week, but lots of progress on a number of projects:

- Dimestore (top complete)
- 241 Tote Bag (still need to piece)
- Happy Weekender (quilting has started)
- FQS 2010 DM BOM (must finish top)

Linking up at Freshly Pieced for WIP Wednesday!




Hope everyone is having a wonderful week!

  4. THese quilts with all different blocks are so fun to do. I did a kit that was a gift from my husband that was a THimbleberries design. I was almost a little sad when I finished piecing the last block.
