WIP Wednesday

Welp, my two quilts are packed up and on their way to Austin for the QuiltCon Quilt Show. Fingers crossed that they arrive in time!

With all the labeling and hanging sleeve-attaching going on, I haven't done much other stitching since the baby quilt finish of last week.

I did finally finish the appliance covers for my friend, and they're on their way to Texas as well, coincidentally. Here is the second cover, awaiting the final bit of binding to be hand sewn down:

There will be a full post on these in the next few days with better, non-Instagram, photos!

Oh, and I almost forgot! The PE teacher/principal at my daughter's school is expecting a baby next month, so I whipped up a quick blanket using an upcycled IKEA kids' duvet cover and some Minky I had lying around.

That line through the centre is a shadow, not a blemish on the quilt or rug.

Isn't the fabric adorable?

I'm currently working on a quick baby/kid quilt for donation to a friend's fundraiser in support of her Ringette team. I'm thinking a simple strip quilt not dissimilar to this one I made a couple years ago, also for a fundraiser:

I'm also about to tackle some more garment sewing - G is blowing through the knees of her leggings at a rapid rate and a few pairs have been removed from the rotation because they're no longer repairable. Mama and her serger to the rescue!!

Linking up with WIP Wednesday with Freshly Pieced, as well as The Needle and Thread Network! Happy Wednesday!
