WIP Wednesday #33

And here it is again ... Wednesday, you sneaker. (In case you're new around here, I'm following along with Freshly Pieced's WIP Wednesday series as a good way for me (and you) to keep track of what's going on around here.)

This weekend, I finished the Les Amis quilt!

I had a big delay while trying to decide how to quilt the silly thing, but once I finally made a decision, it was smooth sailing.
It went in the mail to its new owner yesterday! Check out this post for all the details on the quilt.
After finishing the Les Amis quilt, I decided it was time to get back to a few projects for our house, so I started in on the first of many pillows I've been planning to re-cover.
This pink pillow just makes me smile.

Just getting started:
We're heading to Mexico next week, and I'm determined to whip up a new beach bag before then with these fun fabrics (sorry for the bad basement lighting).

I've also got lots more pillow ideas whirling around in my head, and the fabrics are all pulled for them, too.
So maybe it's time I got up from the computer and headed to the sewing machine. See you next week!
On the "to do" list:
Early Bird/Kitchen Window quilt 
New pillows for the downstairs bed and two chairs
Table runner
iPod workout strap
New quilt for the living room (thinking of doing a sliced coins quilt)
A mug rug for me
T-shirt quilt
Winter hat for B
Picnic quilt
Ironing board cover 
Re-cover downstairs chair

  1. That is a really cool quilt. I love the way you did the back with the chevrons on the back. And I have a huge to do list as well.

    1. Thanks! And that's not even my entire list! :) Good luck with yours.

  2. I love the Les Amis quilt - the colours are so calming. Good luck getting your beach bag done and enjoy your holiday!
