WIP Wednesday {18}

Happy WIP Wednesday!  I did manage to complete one project this week. This little Peasant Top Blouse for my daughter.

Most of my time this week has been spent on this baby quilt for my sister. The shower is in about 3 weeks and I have lot of other stuff in mind that I'd love to make for her! I've been thinking I might quilt this with wavy quilting from side to side. What do you think, how would you quilt this?

Somehow this little project snuck to the forefront too! This Cameo just seems like she wants to be front and center in a hoop. I'm going to see what I can do with her. If I like the results she may just be another little gift for my Make Mine Modern Partner.  I have to pick up a few more supplies though to do what I want!

My fabric organization has come to a halt since I ran out of the boards. Gasp! I really have more fabric than I thought!
 I also managed to pull out Samantha's quilt and get started piecing it. It's been bothering me that this one has been on the WIP list for so long. And it was weird to work on it since I didn't remember anything about it! It was like having a kit all cut and ready for me. Sorry for such a bad photo. It is too long to fit on my design wall.

Projects in waiting:
The million curtain challenge
Baby Onesies
Postage Stamp Quilt
Boy Burp Cloths
Amy Butler Bag

Total WIP's this week: 9

The million curtain challenge - you crack me up, Becky! I love that hoop you're working on, I agree, that fabric is perfect for a hoop. And wavy quilting sounds great, it would mimic the waves in the ocean... :)

Great nautical quilt in progress - I agree waves would be perfect to quilt it with!

I agree with you and the other ladies here - wave quilting would be perfect! And the hoop is adorable with that fabric. Great stuff! Happy Wednesday!

I think the wavy quilting is a great idea since it will look like ocean waves.

Those sail boats are so cute! I did a sails in the sunset block in a sampler quilt once. Underneath the boat I quilted what looked like ocean waves. I think your idea will be fantastic.

If you go to this post and scroll down you will see the block I am talking about.

Oh, definitely go with the wavy line quilting. I love the Neptune print you used for the ocean, it's perfect!

Can I PLEASE be your MMM partner? Thanks. : )
