WIP Wednesday...


It's been a strange couple of days. My boys have gone to stay with Ma & Pa for a couple of days and I've been bangin' around here all by myself. As I am on "holidays" I thought I would put one of my quilts on the frame and do some whimsical custom quilting. I would have done a customer one but I'm waiting on a thread delivery.

This quilt is made from Heather Bailey fabrics. It is so fresh.

I left the whirlygigs with no quilting. I only quilted the background......




The other project I have done a bit on this week is my dresden plate. There are 500+ wedges that were sewn and turned through. Next up is the pressing. I'm putting that off. I should just do 20 at a time and it won't hurt my back so much... 


I'm linking up with WIP Wednesday over at Freshly Pieced. Go on over and see what everyone else is up to...
