In the works

My brain can't seem to focus this week.

Wonky Bee Round 3

I've been thinking about this pile of fabrics, which I've pulled together for Round 3 of the Wonky Bee. The wonky girls have decided to do a traveling bee for this round, partially inspired by the Traveling Quilts group.
I think it will be lots of fun, and I've gotten to know these girls so well over the past few years!
I'm still not sure what my "plan" (I use that term loosely) will be for the quilt, but I know my fabric will be in good hands. I'm supposed to get the quilt started before passing it on to the first person, which is Amanda!

This will be a fairly relaxed bee, with two months for each portion of the quilt, and next fall, we'll all have finished quilt tops to share!


I've also been steady trimming these little half-square triangles. These are being made from Swoon and Which Way leftovers (both of which are still NOT FINISHED). I find it relaxing to trim up a pile every new and then, when I need a break from sewing.

I also used the last of a gift certificate (I tend to savor those gift certificates; this one was from Christmas!) during Pink Castle's labor day sale.

New text prints

I got a few new text prints.

New stash

And this fun pile as well!

I'm working to finish up this plus pillow for my friend Rhonda today.
After that, who knows??

What are you working on?


  1. Maybe one of these days I'll join in a Bee I can't wait to see how your top turns out.

  2. i really love that fabric stack. i have so many ideas swimming in my head to start my bee quilt but, ack! no time.

  3. instead of surfing i should be picking out my fabric too! ;) xo i love your choices and i am so excited for this round!

  4. I'm working on a baby quilt and a couple of little projects. My list is far too long.

  5. Wow, that bee sounds so fun!! And can I just say, your fabric pile has me literally salivating! Love!

  6. how, oh how did i not see that text print that's front and center?!?!?!

  7. That sounds like a great bee. Love your fabric choices.

  8. Lots of good stuff going on over there! Today I got inspired and worked like a maniac on my Ghastlies quilt I started last year. Some great, carefree sewing time! Loved it :)

  9. I love trimming too. So meditative. And where did you get those beautiful diagonal prints from? I love those!

  10. I'm working on a memory quilt for my granddaughter covering her first year. It has lost of photo's which have been printed on to fabric and made into a quilt.

  11. Haha, yes, you sound very busy. The traveling quilts idea sounds like so much fun. That's something I definitely want to do someday.
