It's Wednesday, what is the work in progress?

3" Ohio Stars

It has been weeks since I posted on Wednesday about my work in progress or any kind of plan for the next week, but today I am doing that. I was able to get back to working with the shiny, beautiful Oakshott Liparis and some grey Essex linen Tuesday night - sorry about the very dark picture. I have several more 3" Ohio stars in progress. These are going to be  something for the holidays - a runner or a wall hanging I think.

Mod Pop in progress

Monday night I sewed, pressed and trimmed the curved units for enough more blocks on my Mod Pop quilt to make two more 4 block chains. I will be piecing those this week. We are trying to complete the quilt tops by December 2 in the Mod Pop QAL and I need to set the pace (people are quilting along with me after all) so I am working hard.

EPP Hexagons for Travellin' Pic Stitch Blog Hop

On Sunday I worked on some more hexies for the improv hexie blob. I also got more pillow inserts so I am hopeful the hexie pillow will be done soon. Don't forget that the Travellin' Pic Stitch Blog Hop link up is November 30.

Liberty Squares

I also am hopeful that this weekend I will be able to clear some floor space and get this Liberty quilt basted. It is my plan to use all those solid squares to practice different free motion quilting motifs but I can't start that until it is backed and basted.

I have a couple sets of bee blocks to get done this weekend. And the last thing on this week's list - let's be clear this is not the last thing by far on my entire WIP list, just all I can possibly imagine getting done this week - is to get to work on my last secret swap in progress - the Bee a {modern} Swapper holiday wrap up swap. I have a really good mini quilt plan for the swap, I just need to get started.

I am going to link up with Lee at Freshly Pieced's WIP Wednesday and also with the Canadians at the Needle and Thread Network's WIP Wednesday - the buttons are over on the right side bar of this blog. You will find inspiration and beautiful work on display in both of those groups, I hope you will visit them and link too up your work in progress too.

If you are having Thanksgiving this week, I wish you a lovely holiday.

Best,

Leanne
