WIP Wednesday - A Thing on my List, Something Unexpected and A New Long-Term Project

Still plugging along on my 2016 Finish-Along list, but I had this bright idea to start something unexpected (like I really needed another something!)  Oh ~ and then there's a new EPP project ...

I started on Boxing Match, the pattern by Nancy Mahoney for Quiltmaker (Sept/Oct 2015), and I have to admit this has been the fastest quilt I've put together so far.  

Fabrics cut

I put the pieces together for the first big block (which ends up at 20") and before I knew it I had all 9 blocks finished.  (Excuse the bed in the photo ~ my design wall is up in our guest room!)  As of right now, the blocks are sewn together and I've started to add a couple of small borders.  Hoping to have it checked off my 4th quarter list by the end of the year!

My unexpected project this week is a Christmas mini.  I've had a mini charm pack of Nature's Gift by Deb Strain forEVER, so I decided to use that to make a little table topper (I think).  I'm using the pattern C'est La Vie by Lella Boutique (SO cute! ~ it was an exclusive pattern for Fat Quarter Shop in their Sew Sampler Box for November).  I'm making the mini out of 9 blocks which are each 4-1/2" finished.

I did start on a new-for-me project ~ it's a long-term EPP hexie project that I'll write more about later.  I really like having a project I can work on while I'm watching TV or sitting with a group of friends working on their own projects!  Here's a peek at Block No. 1.  

That's it for now ~ linking up with Lorna for Let's Bee Social!

  1. Your quilt looks great. I love that mini, especially how you put the polka dots in the center of the blocks. The fabric is so pretty!


Thanks for stopping by! I love reading your comments. :)
