2012 Finish-A-Long and WIP Wednesday

04 January 2012

 It's hard to pass up a challenge, especially one that motivates me to get projects marked off my list!  So I decided to link up with Quilter In The Gap's 2012 Finish-A-Long and WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.  For this quarter I have three WIP's that need to be completed!  So here we go ....

First .... I need to finish a mug rug for my Dad.  The pieces are leftover parts from a quilt that I made for him last November.  It needs to be layered, quilted, and bound.  It shouldn't take too long.


Second ..... I need to finish the binding on a quilt for my nephew.  Last September I started three quilts for my brother's three kids.  I finished two of them before Christmas but I still need to finish up the last of the three.  Almost done!

Third ...... This is the biggest project by far!  I am in the process of making a quilt for my niece.  She mentioned she would love to have a quilt for her dorm room.  So, I took the hint and now I need to finish and finish quickly!  I'm making it x-long to fit her whole bed.  You gotta love those x-long dorm beds!  I have 8 blocks done and I need 72 more..... holy moly, I need to get to work!

I am hoping it will end up looking something like this ....

There you have it!  My goal is to have all of those completed by the end of January.  It's going to be tough because my parents will be visiting during that time but I think I can make it happen!  Alrighty .... it's back to the sewing machine for me!


  1. That seems like a doable list. I love the quilt for your niece. I am a huge fan of string blocks but especially like this one!!! I can't wait to see these all done. Thanks for playing with me.

  2. Love how your nephew and niece's quilts are coming along! Good luck with the finishes!

  3. Love the quilt for your niece. I bet she loves it too!

  4. I did a very similar string quilt for my granddaughter last Christmas. It was a lot of work but very rewarding when finished. A great stash buster, too!

  5. I love the poy's quilt! what a nice colours!

  6. Love the string quilt! Your niece will love it. What book are you using for the pattern? I have been wanting to try one and this looks perfect.
