WIP Wednesday #18

Happy Wednesday, everyone! It's time for another update. (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: 
I finished Biscuit's Hide and Seek Spectrum Quilt, my very first quilt! You can read all about it in this post.

Started this week:
This week, I also started and finished a set of bags for our friend Chris's cornhole set. A while back, he decided to build his own board and asked if I'd make the bags to go with it.
He bought the fabric, which is covered in the logos of his alma mater, Wisconsin. I used it for the outside of the bags, with a lining made of duck cloth, so they could withstand hours of being tossed about. I also tripled stitched all the way around.
I had a lot of fabric left over, so I made a lined drawstring bag to hold all of the bags.
The set got its first test run at our baby shower this weekend, and it worked perfectly.

In progress/On the "to do" list:
Empire Waist Cinch for me from Handmade Beginnings
Nursery bedding for the biscuit: crib dust ruffle, crib mobile, and lots of crib sheets
Other biscuit-related projects

  1. Oh saw the spectrum quilt on WIP and had to come visit! I love these quits! If I have another babe it is on my list of quilts to make. Your is awesome! Thank you for sharing...going to click around for a bit...

  2. Your spectrum quilt is so cool! And the back is pretty! :)

  3. The quilt is beautiful. I just barely learned about Cornhole when we moved to Ohio last year. All the neighbors play it during the football games. I'm terrible at it, but yours look great!

  4. Love the quilt! It is so colorful. Great job!
