Works in Progress:

New Project

1. Sewing Machine Cover for COLOR MY NAME
Last night I started a new project.  Well I actually started last week by picking out my colors.

I started cutting out and designing what it would look like last night.  I pieced the first four strips and will work on it again today.  It is due at the end of July and I pony have a few days left to work on it before I get to go on vacation.  So hopefully I will Finish It Up!

2. Skill Builder Blocks

For the Skill Builder Sampler this week the challenge is to make our own block.  Although I am slow in this process since it is almost Friday and almost time for a new block, I am working on it.  Design is made fabric is picked out.  Now I just need to do the math and figure out what I need to cut and sew.

3. Potholder

I finished this one up.  I will be giving it to some friends this summer as a little gift for staying at their house!  I received the block from my Flickr group Teeny Weeny Paper Piece from Wendy. (Thanks)

4. Placemat for FQNB

I also finished up a placemat for the Free Motion Placemat Swappers

FQNB has not received it yet so I am just posting the sneak peek.

5. Placemat for LJW73

I finished the top for another placemat for the Free Motion Placemat Swappers.  It is not due until September so I will do the rest of the quilting after vacation... unless I get to it before we go!

Here is a sneak peek.
