New Year, new WIP's - WIP Wednesday

Wow, it has been months since I've done a WIP Wednesday.  Might as well start the New Year off with a bang!  I've actually got several projects in the works to show you!

I've been making some pillow shams to match the commission quilt I made recently.  They aren't quite done yet, but they are getting close.

Pillow shams

I paper pieced these half rectangles, so some of the seams were a bit thick.  So thick, that I didn't just break this needle, I shattered it.

Shattered needle

So much for titanium.  Ah, these things happen sometimes.  Onward!

But wait!  There's more!  In keeping with my whole "work on what you feel like" thing, I started another small quilt project that I've really been looking forward to, and here are a few teaser shots.

  9. Wonderful quilting Jen, and your Circle of Geese project looks lovely already! Looks like you should be wearing protective goggles when quilting if that is what happens to your needles :)

I LOVE comments, they make my day! Sometimes I am too distracted to respond right away, but I DO read them...always.

Obviously, I can't reply to you at all if you are a no reply blogger. Also, sorry to Anonymous commentors, too much spam lately. You will have to leave a comment another way.

Have a Super Sparkly Day!
