WIP {36}

I have to start out this post with a big Happy Birthday to my daughter who is 3 today! A lot of my works in progress this week have been party related. We took these Micky Inspired cupcakes to her school yesterday.

I did some cleaning of the sewing room since we have people coming this weekend. I'm back to my old method of working with several projects going at once, but I'm still trying to keep it clean!

I finished putting together the center of my mom's Bird Bath quilt (for those who are curious, the pattern comes from Practical Guide to Patchwork but I've upsized it). The center of this is 72"x72". Now I just need to add the borders. My mom wanted as much white as possible so I think I'm going to do solid white borders.
I also started piecing my hexagons. I'm not 100% sure what I'm doing with these, but I'm thinking maybe the bottom of an apron?

I made a push on the double wedding ring arcs and got done the first set of 40!


And I've started on the 2nd set of 40....

And I've been doing some burp cloths for me to use for my little boy.

And I need to do some scrap-booking (I used to do so much of this before quilting found me). When I had my daughter I signed up for Scrap a Faire (i think it was 2007) and took a baby book class with Janna Wilson. She taught this great baby book where you make everything for baby's 1st year in advance and then you just add the photos later. I made this for Samantha and loved it so I'm making another for this baby. I managed to pull everything I need from my stash!! I printed some of the needed transparencies and got that started too.

So that makes 5 total WIPs this week. Oh, 6 if you count my curtains that still haven't been hung! 

Head on over to Lee's at Freshly Pieced and link up what you are working on too! WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

Happy birthday to your daughter! I have a three yo girl as of August. You got some great things done this week! I work on multiple things at once as well, but I do NOT manage to keep things clean! I have about as many hexies together as you, all done last night after 10 pm (yawn). I think mine may end up a dolly quilt.

Those cupcakes are adorable! Happy birthday to your little girl. Love that birdbath quilt, your mom is going to just love it. I also was a scrapbooker before sewing and quilting, love the idea of premaking the baby book! Great projects!

Your fabric choices are to die for. Appropriate considering your blog name. I can't get over how much I love fabric considering I just started. And I love the birdbath quilt, I have that book and I am definitely planning to make it. Great work!
