wip wednesday

I'm afraid that WIP Wednesday is going to be repetitive for a few weeks.  Both projects that I am working on are fairly slow and will probably take a while.
Current WIPs
1. Maple Leaf Rag - still hand quilting.  I decided not to count how many blocks I have done or how many there are total so I am not sure how far along I am. I just want to enjoy the process and try not to rush into finishing.

2. Bangles quilt - I have 24 blocks completed, which leaves 46 blocks plus all of the partial blocks left.  I appreciate the y-seam practice that I am getting while working on this, but it is a little draining.

Projects that I haven't started but hope to start soon:
1.  Roller skate dress for my daughter - Harper is turning 5 in less than 2 weeks (crazy!) and I would like to make her a dress or a tunic.

2.  Mini quilt - in the fall I made this mini to hang behind my computer, then I made this one once it was winter, but I still have the winter quilt hanging up.  It's time for something a little more season appropriate.

Linking up with WIP Wednesday.


  1. Erica, I'm curious about the lap frame and how you are liking it? I have a large hoop, which I've only used once and it was a pain.

    Nice projects, and your daughter is adorable!

  2. I love the off kilter feel of the bangle blocks. I have already professed my love of your Maple Leaf ring... but here I go again... it is beautiful.

  3. Boy, do your stitches look incredible. I'm a big believer in taking the time to do your best. (That said, the skater dress is TOO CUTE not to make, so you better get on that.)

  4. Ditto Heather. I have never hand quilted, but I'd like to start, and I'm gathering good information.

  5. Your hand quilted quilt is stunning! I know what you mean by trying not to keep track of how much is done... I'm working on my first big hand quilted project and it's so tempting to keep a progress bar! Good luck!

  6. The quilt you are doing by hand is so pretty! Wow, I would take my time enjoying every pretty square too if I were you.

  7. I'm so in love with your Maple Leaf Rag quilt. It's absolutely stunning.

  8. Love, love, love your projects. The maple leaf rag is amazing!!

  9. I love your maple leaf rag quilt OMG I wanted to make one with my scraps one day but now I'm thinking I really want to make one yours is so beautiful.
