W.I.P Wednesday

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

I've been working on several projects during the week; trying to divide my time fairly.

First I have started my second Christmas quilt. It has a star block and a 16 patch block. All the pieces have been cut and I'm just taking my time making the blocks.

I've also been working on this apron (Butterick)using Alexander Henry's Farmdale prints. This is my first apron and I did not realize (i.e. didn't read the pattern first!)that I was going to need tons of piping and rick rack. Luckily I had the rick rack. I found how to make some piping online, and I made some, but I didn't like how that turned out, so I'm using all rick rack. I still have to put the waistband and ties on. Here's my husband modeling it for my picture.

And here's my fist Christmas quilt. All pinned and ready to be quilted. I'm just undecided on how I want to do it. I'm a bit tempted to give FMQ another go, but I'm not 100% sure that I want to go that way.


  1. Hi Simone! I stopped by tot say thanks for the comment about my Swoon and Bottled Rainbows blocks! You are a no-reply blogger, so I couldn't respond to you by email.

    I love the Farmdale apron! How cute!! And I think your Christmas quilt will be lovely. Star blocks are one of my favorites.

  2. I love that you're making Christmas quilts! This is the first year I've made anything that's specifically a "Christmas Quilt" ... and it's been fun!

  3. Lovely Christmas quilt - I'm generally not big on Christmas fabric but actually really like yours a lot :)

  4. That apron is co cute!! I love it!

  5. Love that apron! Thanks for the heads up on the go cutter. I thought that was the point, it's supposed to be accurate. Good thing I'm borrowing it!

  6. Wow!! Love the color combos that you've picked for your quilts. That apron is going to be an adorable one!! Your hubby did a great job modeling it! :o) Keep up your crafting, love that you do all sorts of things. Have a blessed day! Jen
