WIP Wednesday - Kid's Quilts

I had such a blissful day of quilting yesterday! Bright sunshine (although cold!) to get things off to a great start with 3 quilts for Project Linus that I had sandwiched on Monday night. I am trying to be resourceful about coming up with ways to make basting quilts less of a dreaded task and I think I might be onto a few things that I'll post about another day.

And, I tried something new... listening to an audiobook! My library offers downloads for 3 weeks using an iPhone app called OneClickDigital so I set that up and browsed their library. I enjoy John Sandford's detective novels set in Minneapolis/St. Paul and they seemed like a good fit for quilting along to. So far, so good!

I took these pictures mid day before I lost the good sun. One done (I washed out the color a bit so you can see the wonky waves of thread better)...
One at Mr. Juki...
 One ready to go on the floor!
On Monday my son and have a trip for his last orthodontic visit (he's been braces free for just over a year). It's in the same town where I drop off my Project Linus quilts, so it makes sense to chalk up some more UFO Finishes, clear some space in my closet and, most importantly, get some quilts out to kids in need!

What's Hot:

  • Everything with a single asterisk on my February Goals List - more than a few projects underfoot this week.
What's Not:

  • Everything with a double asterisk on my February Goals List (hopefully they are hot at my LAQ!)
  • HGTV Pincushion Swap - good thing they aren't due until the end of March.
I'm linking up to WIP Wednesday@Freshly Pieced.

  3. I love Project Linus, and these are beautiful quilts perfect for it!

  4. You are certainly accomplishing much!!!! Way to go!

  5. These quilts will be loved by the kids who receive them. Very cute. Isn't it amazing how a simple pattern comes alive because of the fabrics chosen? Very cute.

    Stay warm! We are having another frigid day here and expecting snow tonight and again on Sunday. But at least the wind quit howling like on Monday.

  7. now those are some fabulous donations quilts.

  8. I just love the rainbow sherbet one! So yummy looking! I love Project Linus, too. They're a great ministry to kids. My daughter is a foster mom and I know there are so many kids out there that need to be wrapped up in love.

  9. Ooooh the oranges and purples are amazing!!! Looks gorgeous!!!

  10. These are all great quilts - so much colour!
