Work in Progress #18

Happy Wednesday everyone! Thanks for stopping by to visit and check out what I have been up to. I can sum up most of my week in one word - Cutting!

Completed Projects:
A cute little bag made for a moda bake shop tutorial and Origins fabric by Basic Gray.

Small bag

I finished one my bee blocks for the month of June. It was pretty easy, it was my own.
June Scrap-bee blocks

I asked for the modified bento box block tutorial from Film on the Fridge blog's tutorial.  I just got my fabric for my other bee so I will work on that one next week. I would do it this week, but I am going to see my mom, we are taking a class together. Speaking of that...

New Projects:
Prairie Claw Block - This is the class I am taking with my mom. Click the link to see example of that. I cut all the fabric, placed it in my box and I am ready for my class on Friday.

Sacramento Modern Quilt Guild's Kona Challenge - I picked my block, created a pattern, did a lot of math and started cutting the fabric.

Embroidery 101 Quilt Along - I just recieved the cutest little package from SewLux Fabric, for this quilt along.


Isn't it lovely, and guess what was inside. Yep fabric, fabric I have to cut!

Ongoing Projects:

I didn't do anything with these:

Doll Quilt for the Sacramento Modern Quilt Guild Challenge. I just need to finishing binding it. I made a silly mistake in binding it and I just haven't fixed it yet, it really would only take me 5 minutes to finish. I don't know why I haven't done it yet.

  1. I love that turquoise/orange color combo! And I envy your Momo fabric, cut and ready to use...

  2. I've joined the kaledioscope qal too. Can't wait to see how your fabric works in the block

  3. The fabrics you chose for your Prairie Claw class are beautiful! I can't wait to check back again to see how they're coming along. It's going to be spectacular.
