WIP Wednesday #5

It's Wednesday, and I don't have much to show for the week, but I guess that's what happens when you're gone for most of the week and all of the weekend. The wedding was wonderful, and I had a great time with my family. Of course, it's also nice to be back home and back to sewing. (In case you've missed out, I'm following along with Freshly Pieced's W.I.P. (Work In Progress) Wednesday series as a good way for me (and you) to keep track of what's going on around here.)

Completed this week:
Block #2 of my Early Bird/Kitchen Window quilt
I sure do love those little toasters.
Kindle sleeve tutorial — look for it tomorrow!

Started this week:
This month's Style Stitches bag, the Origami Bag Set. This is a set of 6 zipper pouches in different sizes, which, while very cute, I don't really need right now. Still, I don't want to miss a month of the challenge, so I'm planning to just make one of the bags.
I like the example shown here in the book, where the bag is used to store ribbon. That's the plan for my bag.

In progress:
Blocking the Early Bird/Kitchen Window quilt
Possible sewing projects for friends: hemming pants and making curtains
AND I'm considering participating in my first quilt along. I know — I've barely begun my first quilt, and I'm already thinking about jumping into another, but these two look so beautiful, it's hard to resist:
Supernova Quilt-Along with Freshly Pieced     OR     P2 Modern Solids Quilt Along

  1. I totally vote for the Supernova quilt-along! The solids quilt along looks like fun, too, but I definitely vote for joining the Supernova quilt along :) Your Early Bird wip looks great so far, that's one of my favorite collections :)

  2. Those toasters are adorable!

  3. You did a great job and got a lot done. If you got that much done and were out of town, Wow! I'm just a slow poke quilter, I'm afraid.

  4. Your kitchen window blocks look great! I can't believe this is your first quilt! I, of course, vote for you joining Supernova. Quilt-alongs are great for beginning quilters, because you have a place to ask questions, etc.

    Thanks for linking up to WIP Wednesday, have a wonderful week. : )

  5. That is going to be a fun quilt. I love it!
    Those bags look fun. I haven't heard of the Style Stitches bag challenge but it sure looks fun!

  6. Where did you find the toaster fabric? It is adorable! I'm going to do Supernova too.

  7. Your kitchen window looks great! I'm wavering on the Supernova too. It will all depend on if I can find the perfect fabrics in my stash!
    I've also been on the fence about that Amy Butler book. I really want it, but I have too many projects already!

  8. I love the cute toaster fabric! What a fun tutorial!

  9. I like your fabric choices for the kitchen window. Quilting is very addictive, one just leds to another :) Have fun!

  10. Love the windows, they look so great! I am also considering the super nova quilt along..I just can't decide for sure....

    I am doing the Amy Butler Style Stitches bags also, I have all 6 origami bags done and I love them, enjoy making yours!

  11. the toasters are cute,What is the name of the fabric?,thank you for sharing,Amy
