WIP Wednesday

What a busy week this has been!!  I finally finished picking peas and beans for this year...but I love doing it. It just interferes with my sewing time...lol.  Now; for works in progress this week:

I am working on the RTQAL...latest block:

I am working on the Sew Intertwined QAL...latest set of blocks in progress:

I am hand quilting this Snowball quilt:  This is antique(or maybe just old)

There is an interesting story behind this quilt. My husband's grandmother pieced this by hand. She has been gone for over 40 years now. One of her daughters passed it down to one of her daughter-in-laws, because she knew this one would take care of it.  She happens to be a fairly new customer of mine. She just recently realized that I quilt for others; so.....yes; I am hand quilting this for her.
Now it is frail...and has some yellowing on it, but overall it is decent shape. 

Now is it some coincidence that it has come around like this or what????  When I finish this one; she has a king size Log Cabin for me to do...it is new...lol.

That is it for me for this week folks...I am linking up to Monika and Rebecca; please join us.
