WIPs Wednesday...

Can it really be six months 

since I did a Works In Progress Post?

Yes, indeed!

So here is what I am working on...

batting for three quilts,

some of which was for my sister 

Helen's pretty sampler!

The rest is for my Melbourne Town, waiting to be hand quilted...

And my Winter Citrus, waiting for some machine quilting!

Appliqueing my hexie flowers to 10" squares,

and fussy cutting, into 2.5" squares,

some precious Heather Ross fabric...

for a secret project!

I hope you are all getting some sewing time this 


I'd love to know what you are up to.....

Happy days!


ps It's not too late to enter my giveaway over here 
I will draw a winner soon.


  1. That for me is the horrible part of quilting - pinning, smoothing, repinning and praying that it is all smooth. Good luck, love your mystery HR project - especially the fish in a bag and that mermaid.

  2. I too have some basting to do. I'm all ready to baste my Jazz hands quilt ready for hand quilting, I love your version of it. I'm planning to do some more My Small World too.

  3. Such beautiful work! The colours in Winter Citrus are so pretty! Looking forward to seeing how you quilt these :)

  4. I love everything you're working on; I'm having a productive summer also--will be picking up four quilts from my long arm quilter and once those are bound, I finished 15 tops made possible by being retired and having no children/grandchildren to keep me company. I'm also working on EPP--I have some ready to be appliquéd to keep me busy for future road trips. I too am looking forward when your projects are finished, especially Melbourne Town.

  5. Beautiful projects - love your Melbourne Town!

  6. NOthing as interesting or wonderful as your WIP list! I think I may have lost my mojo! Or maybe the dog ate it! Hahaha! I think some exciting things may be happening soon though 😉

  7. So many lovely things on the go and all so happy looking.

  8. I agree with Lucy - such beautiful work! I love the hexagon flowers - I think hexies look much better this way (appliqued onto squares) than all stitched together. And the HR piece is such fun - all those tiny fussy cut squares with such unique illustrations. Have you ordered any Tiger Lilly yet? :-)

  9. Lots of beautiful projects happening with you. Excited to see how you'll finish Melbourne Town and Winter Citrus. I've just started a new pillow (even though I already have a list of WIPs I could be finishing ;o).

  10. Oooh--I was hoping to see that Melbourne Town was on the list to be batted and pinned (are those verbs?). You inspire me--I'll tuck it away for when I can get to those stages.

  11. These are all such beautiful projects. I'm just getting ready to BEGIN My Small World--mine is actually going to be "A Day at Disneyland."

  12. So many fun projects Susan. Especially love those the cute little hexies.

  13. Like you – a little bit of everything. I seem not to be doing much blog reading.
    You have so many fun things on the go. How to choose what to work on next?
