WIP Wednesday

There hasn't been much blogging around here lately, but that's because I've been busy sewing!  So I have a packed WIP Wednesday post for you this week.

The first thing I want to share is the April Schnibble.  I pieced the whole top in just a few hours and loved making it.  So much fun.

I used my last 2 Cape Ann charms packs for this Schnibble and I really like how it turned out.  The green dot fabric came from my stash.  I plan on quilting this little top this weekend at the cottage.  With any luck, I'll have a completely finished quilt for the parade on May 1.

I also finished piecing all of my granny squares recently and even started putting them into rows.  Here is a picture of all the squares laid out on my sewing room floor.  I love the colours in this fabric collection (Little Apples by Aneela Hoey) and think this jelly roll was perfect for the job.

I decided on a 5 x 8 layout with sashing of course which you can see in this next picture.  I've got 3 rows done out of 8 so maybe this quilt top will be all done by the end of April, as planned.

The last project I worked on this week was Pandora's Box.  I quilted the whole top over the weekend and prepared the binding Sunday night.  On tonight's agenda:  sewing the binding on the quilt.

Overall, a pretty good week!  :-)

Linking up at Lee's for WIP Wednesday.
