WIP Wednesday

Mid week already!  Is it just me; or does it go faster as we age or what???? lol  Keeping busy anyway....lots of work being done; not all sewing.

My WIP list this week:  I have 2 scrappy's still waiting to be quilted.  I used to say hand quilted....but now I just may machine quilt one of them anyway.   Tiara is so much fun!! I also have a 'Chimes' table topper to quilt and my 'Disappearing 9 patch'.

I am half way on the second graduation you soon. I don't dare chance it yet.

I have finished piecing the 'Teardrop' QAL quilt top...

I added 2 extra borders to make it bigger. I really like the colors in this quilt..and it went together very easily and nicely.  Now a closer look at the teardrops.

I am ready for my day of the 'It's For The Birds' blog day is Thursday; hope to see you there.
I am working on my project for the 'May Flowers' blog hop......a peek
I know; not much of a peek is

I have an appliqued quilt top waiting to be hand quilted....another quilt arriving soon to be quilted.
And I should be able to start the fishing lodge theme quilt by the end of this week....fingers crossed.

I also have the table topper I machine quilted last week to bind....and I machine quilted a baby quilt the other day; needs to be bound...
 The back....

I am also making a couple of cushion covers with my sewing buddies...
This was a fun project....I enjoyed doing the petals with the stitch instead of an applique..
Thanks for listening....I am now linking up to Lee and Monika;  join us, please.

Almost forgot:  If anyone in my roundabout area....close to moncton; is interested in seeing a demo on the Baby Lock Tiara....long arm machine.  May 25th between 10am and 8pm there will be an instructor at the Champlain sewing center. I am going to be learn more about my new Tiara. It is a fantastic machine...if you can manage and are thinking about one; this is the place to be.
