wip wednesday

I have not done a ton of sewing this past week since I am now addicted to watching Parks and Recreation on Netflix.  I love it so much.  But now I am almost out of episodes to watch, I am going to get to finishing up this quilt top for my husband.
It is BIG.  The finished size will be 81" square.

Future projects:

  • I recently found out that one of my friends is expecting a baby girl and I am planning on making quilt for her.  It needs to be done soon because she lives on the other side of the country, but I would like to give it to her while she is visiting Southern California next month.
  • End of the school year presents for my daughter's teachers.
  • Super tote.  I can't resist anymore.  I just need to get some cording for the piping and then I will get to work on this one.

  1. The quilt looks great, and wow, you brought that together really quick!!

    The super tote is awesome. I didn't do piping and I couldn't find any in a colour I liked at the fabric store, so what I did was make the pocket facing 1/2" wider than called for, sewed it down right sides facing with pocket piece with a 1/4" seam, then flipped it around to the back. It turned out great and really resembles piping in my opinion.

  3. Love that quilt! I just made a Super Tote (I blogged about it on Monday--I made mine a little smaller than the pattern).

  4. Have you seen the Ron Swanson quilt from Happy Zombie? We love Parks and Rec too, and I am halfway done with making Ron's face quilt for my husband. I giggle every time I think about him using it!

  8. BEAUTIFUL! Love the stair-stepped stars :) Also, as a fellow Parks (among other things) addict, I highly recommend watching {while} sewing (I actually have limited my netflix/hulu use to my sewing room so I don't get sucked into an impromptu marathon on the couch :) Either way you clearly have managed to accomplish a great deal!
