WIP Wednesday

Time for another WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced. Yesterday was my turn on the Let's get Acquainted Blog Hop hosted by Beth at Plum and June and I admitted there that I have many many UFO's piled up. Sadly my family is so used to seeing quilt tops hanging up around the house that they don't even know what a quilted quilt looks like. But not any more! After whipping up a little table runner tutorial for the hop and quilting it and putting it to use already, it seemed time to finish the original table runners that sparked the tutorial.

Fat Quarter Table Runner made with this tutorial.

Original table runners not yet quilted. I'm working on it.

Plus I'd like to get my fall sunflower quilt actually finished. I'm embarrassed to admit that I made this quilt years ago and hang it up in the fall even though it's not yet quilted. And even though it's not so much my style anymore, I still like the fall feeling it brings to the room. So the time has come. The backing is ready. The batting is cut. Basting right now, quilting this afternoon. Fingers crossed.

This quilt is like standing in a field of sunflowers in Kansas. It's busy busy but makes me smile. Now if only I can manage to keep smiling while I quilt it.


  1. I love the pattern of the pieces! I am stopping by from the WIP blog hop. I have my WIPs up today if you want to stop by :)

  2. The sunflower quilt is lovely. One of my favorite flowers!

  3. I know what you mean about the quilts piling up. I only have one right now but that's because I already quilted two this month. I'm just learning to do it on my machine at home so I tell my hubby I have a good excuse.

  4. I found your blog at the New Quilt Blog Linky Party. Your blog is great! Love your designs. It'll be a treat for me to visit your blog. Feel free to visit/follow me as well! Nice to meet you!

  5. Wonderful!I loved your tutorial! Thanks.


WaHoo!!! You're leaving me a comment. Thanks for stopping by and do come back again. Quilt on, Anne.
