W.i.P. Wednesday

I feel like I've made a little more progress this week - finishing a quilt top and choosing its backing, organizing my stash closet, which makes it sooo much easier to work, and getting a good start on the month's bee blocks. So a variety of projects to show for W.i.P. Wednesday today . . .

Completed Projects
Parisian Star - Susan of The History Quilter chose this block during her month in the Modern Blocks Bee. The pattern is by Leanne Cohen from Modern Blocks. Susan's fabric choices made this fun to construct - osnaburg for the background and Anna Maria Horner's Little Folks voile for the star.
Parisian Star - October 

Ongoing projects
Mod Pop Quilt-along - The top is done! Now to piece the backing and get to quilting!

Christmas lap quilt - No progress, but I've been thinking about it!

Modern Crosses quilt - I've been plugging away at blocks, and have quite a few more than this in one stage of completion or another.

November bee blocks - In the works and on schedule!

Lined Drawstring Bag - Decided it was time to do up a Christmas one, and am cutting into my Brrr! by Laurie Wisbrun, and using Jeni's pattern.

Upcoming projects
* Christmas!
* more frame purses
* Ruby Star Wrapping
* Binary quilt using blocks from Modern Blocks Bee
* scrappy Metrolink
* Polaroid block projects
* placemats
* Dresden project - back on the 'sometime' list, and probably no time soon

Linking up with W.i.P. Wednesday.

Love the Mod Pop! Great use of purples there. But, tsk tsk, it's almost December. Stop THINKING about the lap quilt and get to making! ;)

i love your Mod Pop. The new bag is going to be sweet with those fabrics. I envy your w.i.p.s but mostly your post. I cannot seem to get from doing the work (its not work, its play!) to creating the posts about it. Ah well, I'll get there. Have a great Thanksgiving - I'm certain it will be delicious!
