WIP Wednesday - 11/16/2011

The only thing I have worked on this week is my supernova quilt.

This beauty has been in the machine all week.  I only have about half the border left to do.  YAY!

I am trying to get it ready for binding before I go to my mom's house for Thanksgiving so that I will have some hand stitching to do.

This quilt is partially bound and will get completed at my mom's.

Sometimes, a WIP is still in the 'thought' stage.  My Asian mystery quilt is in a thought stage.  The top is done, it has borders...heck, it was even sandwiched and pinned.  I am thinking about un-pinning and un-sandwiching the quilt so that I can re-sandwich and pin with my new favorite bamboo batting.

The batting that is in there now is a poly-cotton blend and it is quite lofty.  I prepared this quilt so long ago, that I didn't know the differences in batting yet.  LOL

Over the weekend, my friend and I went to a couple of local shops to get in on some sales.  :)  One of them was Sew to Speak and I found these beauties for 30% (maybe 20% on one) off each!

From last week, I had 2 quilt name suggestions that I really liked and plan on using.  :)

Thanks to Marjorie of Marjories Busy Corner, the birdcage chain quilt becomes Caged Staircase.

And thanks to AlegoryDarling of Sew Allegorical, black/yellow quilt has become Formal Honeybees.

Both of these helpful ladies will receive an awesome fat quarter!  YAY!  Please send me your mailing address so I can get the 'thank you' gift out to you.
