W.i.P. Wednesday

It seems like everything's on a small scale lately, project-wise. I'm hoping to start on something larger before next W.i.P. Wednesday. 

Completed projects
Zakka Style Sew-Along project #20: Little Pocket Pillowcase - This one was fun (the patchwork and the French seams) and frustrating (my wrong-size pillow, plus the bear). But it finished up pretty sweet, and you can read all about it here.

100 Quilts donation quilt - A kid-size quilt called "Sweet Baby Girlie". 

 Little Baby Bibs - These little drool bibs were a fun little baby gift.

*Picture-Perfect* Polaroid Block Swap blocks - Whew! While packages keep coming in, I finally finished my blocks. 115 ready to swap!
 

August do.Good Stitches blocksAugust Always Bee Learning blocks, and August Modern Blocks Bee block - I really enjoyed making all of this month's blocks, all new patterns to me.

Ongoing projects
Zakka Style Sew-Along project #21: Sweet Memories Photo Frame - I hate to tell you how long it took me to get this far! But I have the two sides pieced, and one sashiko-d together! Reading ahead to step #6 on p. 98, I can't envision what the craft paper's purpose is, and can these pieces be cut like from a grocery bag? If someone can enlighten me, I'd sure appreciate it. Meanwhile, stay tuned. Hopefully I can pull this one off.

Improv log-cabin quilt - No progress unfortunately.

Upcoming projects
* more Zakka - only four more to go!
* a quilt to coordinate with my Christmas tree skirt
* scrappy Metrolink
* Plus quilt for my sister-in-law - I was mistaken; it's really a Modern Cross quilt using Susan Beal's pattern.
* EZ Dresden Challenge project - still hoping - at least I have wedges cut now!

Linking up with W.i.P. Wednesday, guest hosted by Rebecca of Pieces and Cream.

115! Woah! Love your pocket pillow - I know a small girl who would love one, I may need to actually make a zakka project instead of procrastinating :o)

I don't know how you keep all these great projects sorted out! I would love to see a picture of your sewing room. Mine would look like a bomb hit it.
