WIP Wednesday

Well today is November 22 and the snow is melting outside!! What an exciting way to start the day. Now to those of you who are not stuck in the deep freeze for 6 months out of the year you might say who cares? However, any break from the -30C weather is a time to do the happy dance!

Today I am going to try something a little different. I am going to take part in the WIP (work in progress) Wednesday link up over at Freshly Pieced.  it’s a place to showcase your works in progress and check out what other people from around the globe are working on as well. This is my first time ever linking up...but I thought what the heck why not give it a try.

I cannot figure out how to make this button link to her site.... so click here


My WIP is still my first ever quilt. Don’t mind the wrinkly parts. It’s been sitting half folded up for a month now.  This is the one that I took a class for and still haven’t gotten around to finishing it. It’s almost done though! I have stitched in the ditch like the instructor told us to do, but didn’t show us how. I think I need to do that a bit more though since there are some pretty huge gaps between the quilted parts.

I figure if I get my butt in gear today I should be able to finish the quilting part and then I can move onto the binding. Hopefully by next Wednesday this quilt will be done!

  1. What a fantastic first quilt! It's too bad the instructor didn't show you how to stitch in the ditch. I've given up on doing that because I can't manage to stay in the ditch. :D

  2. Love the colours.
    It's funny the comments in blogland latey re stitch in the ditch. That's the only machine quilting I've ever done! Lol.

  4. I don't see traditional log cabins much these days and this one is REALLY pretty. Log Cabins are one of my favorite designs. =)
