WIP Wednesday - 9/26

Today is my follow up from my dental work a couple of weeks ago. I have been eating soft foods for 2 weeks (mostly) and I am SOOOOO ready to get the OK to eat whatever I want. My lunch tomorrow will probably consist of Taco Bell and Doritos! Most definitely the Doritos!

I didn't have much to post last week so I skipped the WIP Wednesday post. I do have things to show this week so I am pretty stoked to post!

I made 2 Midget blocks.



I made 2 BOM blocks for the Paris in the Fall BOM that is from 2009. An older UFO!


I also worked on another UFO as a leader/ender project. This is called Moon Pie. There are 2 more pieces to be sewn to these blocks and I think that there are 48 blocks total for the quilt. I actually sewed a bunch of these Tuesday morning while I was watching the news. So much for keeping them as leaders and enders.


I had to finish a UFO for my Queen of UFO's Yahoo group so I pulled out a selection of charm squares and a pattern that I put aside last December for holiday table runners. I got this finished in just about 36 hours. I worked on the piecing while I watched Survivor and the Big Brother finale (so excited for Ian to win, btw!)!



I have made great progress on my fourth Scrap Squad quilt, but I can't show anything. There is a lot of paper piecing and I am in the assembly phase of the top right now. I have decided that since my quilting space is limited, I am going to send this quilt off to Ruth in Indiana for quilting and she will have it ready for me at the quilt retreat that is in 3 weeks and 1 day.

Even though I am still working on the fourth Scrap Squad, the magazine has already selected the fifth pattern and sent that last week. I spent Friday evening drawing the pattern up in EQ and then re-coloring everything until I found the design that I like. I think that I am going to start pulling fabrics as soon as I finish the fourth Scrap Squad and make the Blog Hop goodies. The winner has been very patient, but I don't want to wait too much longer!

You have been very productive! Have you made your list yet on what you plan on working on during your retreat?

Wow! You have plans to be in the sewing room a lot next week. Love those colors in the UFO and the table runner. That L&E blocks look cute. I can't wait to see what they look like in the quilt.
