WIPS Bits!

There still has not been as much sewing time as I 

would like.....

but there is no point dwelling on it.....

I have completed Jazz Hands #7....

This bottom point is not working.....?

which gives me a few days of July left to concentrate 

my hand sewing time.....

on the hand quilting of "Summer Stars"....


Not sure why I thought quilting around these circles 

was a good idea!


I only have 85 more to do...



with very little thread left! Ugh!

I've had a couple of daylight hours at the machine....

But I am not quite ready to share my "Echo" 

completely yet...


And I may have cut into some fabric to make.....



yes, some Grannies....

Linking up with Freshly Pieced....

Happy sewing!

  2. Ooh, I'm about to hand quilt circles on my daughter's quilt... You've got me a little scared.

    I love the peek of your echo quilt, it looks like it will be absolutely stunning.

  3. Oh lots of lovelies!! You'll be glad you handquilted the circles when they're done. There's always more thread at the thread shop. Echo is looking fabulous and I can't see the stars funny bottom.

  16. Those Jazz Hands never disappoint! I think you're nuts to be doing all those circles too, but it's definitely going to be stunning when it's done.
    Love the granny square - still something I haven't tried yet (but think about all the time).

  17. What gorgeous sneak peaks of the projects you've been working on! Maybe you could leave some of those circles unquilted?
    Where did you get your echo prints, I have a few more I need ? =D

  18. I enjoyed seeing what you are working on.

    Sometimes we think a good idea is great which it is but ends up taking so much time, your quilt will look great after the circle quilting.
