WIP Wednesday

Welcome to this week's WIP Wednesday.

For those of you who have not yet entered my giveway please go here and leave a comment but don't forget to come back and read the rest of this post!

SWS Giveaway 
and because we reached 200 followers here is the extra prize 


I cannot contain my excitement!!! 


I quilted it in straight lines using my favourite, invisible thread.  

Fabrics used, linen/cotton, city weekend fabrics (roundabout dots in bistro red, and treetop in bistro red).  I love the dots fabric I cannot get enough of it, it fits in with everything.

WIP Wednesday really works!

My to do list is going to be pretty short this week as I am gearing up for the Farmers Market this Saturday, so I pretty much spent the last few days sewing up baby balls, mobile phone covers. I did achieve another task.  I made 3 4 cafetiere cosies. 

To Do

1. Start working out what to make my secret swap partner for this Scrappy Mug Rug Swap 

2. Start cutting fabric for baby quilt order (thank you Sarah for the referral!) 

3. Treat the boys for being so patient while mummy has been focused on preparing for the market!

4. Finish a tutorial on joining hexies, english paper piecing with a view to making a cushion from them.

5. Write up binding tutorial.

Have a good Wednesday all!

As usual I am linking up to Lee's WIP Wednesday!


  1. I love you're tablerunner just love it. Your to do list made me smile, I would love to be one of the boys...hmm a treat. What we don't do for a little patience. Hope you'll have a lot of fun at the market.

  2. Super cute table runner! I totally agree, I love that red dot print, it's just darling. I keep thinking about the hexie papers I have in my sewing box, I'd love to see a tute on joining them, maybe it would inspire me to finally try making some!

  3. The table runner is great and those hexies are looking fab too! Hope the Market goes well for u :-) and thanks for the mention!

  4. Your hexies are really lovely! Will you stick with a cusion or are you thinking of going big? I haven't tried them myself, but I imagine they're a lot of work :)

  5. The runner looks brilliant - well done on getting it finished!
    Good luck on Saturday - hope the sun shines xx

  6. The straightline quilting on that runner is just perfect!!

  7. What a lovely table runner! And many, many sales at the market!

  8. LOVE the table runner!! Did you follow a pattern? Would it be ok if I "copied" the layout of it (different fabric, etc...) & gave you full credit of course.... I love the simplicity of it, yet it's so bold & modern!

  9. That table runner looks beautiful! I love that type of quilting for runners!

  10. Love the table runner, oh that I could be "sew" talented... I had quite the to do list, not sure that I accomplished all I should have!

  11. Great giveaways...and that table runner is darling!! Great work! Thanks for linking to Fabric Tuesday!

  12. The linen runner turned out really well. Your hexagon project sounds interesting.

  13. I love linen on a quilt! Very attractive. Happy quilting!

  14. beautiful table runner, your quilting is wonderful!


In case you think I am being awfully rude by not acknowledging your comments it is because I find that a lot of you are NO REPLY bloggers.
