WIP Wednesday #2

Welcome to visitors from Amanda's Finish It Up Friday and Kelly's Needle and Thread Thursday and from Lee's WIP Wednesday link-up

This is my ultimate sewing week! I love my husband and child, however I have to say that having five days at home on my own (they are visiting family in Napier) is sewing heaven! Not to mention the fact that I have the TV to myself and can eat whenever and whatever I want!

This week's progress...three quilt tops so far...

#1 quilt top...Spiderman theme, single bed size

10" sized blocks alternate with bordered 6" blocks




#2 quilt top...red/black/grey, single bed size - based on the pattern above...- I actually had enough blocks to make a double-bed sized quilt but decided I preferred it as two smaller quilts...

Striped 10" blocks, with bordered striped 6" blocks
#3 quilt top...red/black/grey, lap size

  1. When I only had one boy, my husband took him on a fishing trip for a week. I pieced a queen size quilt while they were gone. Looks like you have also made good use of your time. I love those red, black, and grey quilts.

    1. Yes, as much as we love them we also sometimes need some time out for ourselves! I am looking forward to seeing them again tomorrow. Thanks for dropping by!

    1. That is certainly the plan! One soon-to-be five-year-old nephew to be exact! Cheers.

    1. Thanks Marly! It is a nice easy pattern (that was easy to do while catching up with all my favourite programmes that I had saved up to watch while I had control of the TV screen LOL!)

  4. A mini-retreat where you don't have to pack it up and you can stay in your pj's!?! Heaven for a quilter!
    Love the red, black and white one especially.

    1. I know! I was cherishing every moment (in between walking the dog and feeding the hens/cat/dog) - what wasn't to love about it?

  5. I can see that it has been way too long since I've visited your blog! All sorts of wonderful things going on here! The Spiderman quilt is perfect, and the red and gray is just wonderful!

    1. And I can see that you have certainly been having a good catch up! Thanks for the lovely comments. I started quilting Spiderman today - mainly straight lines...am going to fmq spiderwebs in the corners of three of the large blocks and three of the small blocks. Hopefully it'll turn out as I envision it. School officially starts on Monday so I want to get it all done before the end of this week!
