WIPs Be Gone Week 3

Hey, I have been working on that hexie flower quilt all last year so that makes it a WIP - hehe.  So that's WIP #3.

Here's the latest flower on the right. Made it during the four hours I spent at the doctor's doing some of those annual things they always want us to do.  And I figured out a border for WIP #1.  I have to make 72 of those little sections - it will take me a while.

WIP #2 is one I also started in 2014 - My Happy Scrappy Orphan Block Quilt by Rosemary Young. She made two gorgeous ones!
  I need to vary what I work on so that's why I pulled this out, plus it's mostly using orphan blocks and making a left side to this top. So I hope to be done very soon. Rosemary's is a lot bigger - I don't want mine so big.  Also I'm running out of blocks and I wanted to get rid of blocks, not make more.

How are you doing on your WIP?  Would love to see - doesn't have to be a finish - even a little progress is great.  Linky below - remember it doesn't have to be a new post, just one that shows your WIP.  Ends Monday, midnight. I finished a flower so I'm linking to Amanda's Finish it Friday and Sarah's Can I get a Whoop, Whoop?  Lots of eye candy there.


  1. I have nothing to show for my hexies right now but I do have hundreds of mini tumblers on my wall right now.

  2. Oh I feel you! Trying to finish projects with orphan blocks. The only problem is that I keep on making blocks. Something is going wrong here, ha ha !

  3. Oh, you have a couple of lovely WIPs. I had to go back and look at #1 which I really love. Good luck on some finishes. I'm trying to finish up a bunch of UFOs this year myself.

  4. Thanks for the invite to link up! Your hexie flower is so sweet!! :)

  5. I left my hexies behind this trip. I love your Orphan Quilt. I think that would be a great challenge for myself this summer! I'll bet I could dig out enough orphan blocks to make at least a twin! Have a wonderful day!

  6. I have lots of orphan blocks but they just don’t seem to go together. Yours look great.

  7. Hexies don't usually appeal to me, but this flower is wonderful! Your use of a batiks instead of solids or prints makess it so much more vibrant.

  8. Both very wonderful colorful projects. So glad you switched to this linky.

  9. I managed to get sick on my own birthday, am finally catching up with blogs and I once again missed your linky party. I certainly could use a few extra hours in the day!!

    Like you, I like to alternate my projects, both pieced and EPP. Love the pieced border you picked for WIP#1. It might take you a while but I think it will be well worth it!


Thank you for stopping by. It's always nice to hear from you. I try to reply to each and every one of you, but sometimes life gets in the way. I hope you understand. Blessings.

Back to Quilting

  Back to quilting.  After my mishap, it was slow going to return to working in the sewing room. Since I could only piece, I began two more ...
