The Truth about Work In Progress


Hey Guys!

Consider this my confession!  I have a number of Work In Progress going and it seems like I attention span is really short….I can be so focused on one project then I get tired of it.  Do any of you have that problem?  Here are my work in progress….I hope to soon have something finished!

This is my newest WIP.   It has my full attention ….lucky WIP

I will be talking about this quilt tomorrow.  I am making this for a friend’s daughter.  All the cutting is done and I think will be submitting it this Sunday for Project Quilting.  This quilt below is also for my friend ….you should check out her blog!  She is a fitness person.  Both are due at the end of the month.  Slow and Steady wins the race! work in progress

The quilt below is for another friend who has already had her baby.  I am having such a hard time finishing up this scrappy trip along!   Poor WIP!  Hopefully I will have it done before April! 


The Finished Product!

I have 10 of these to make for my mother….

One day I will pick these up again.

All the cutting is done here also….just need to get started!

Well that is only eight….not bad I guess!  I suppose this is a good start to get organized!  I am linking up to Freshly Pieced WIP link up.  If you are visiting from there please let me know!  I love to visit new blog and see what you are up to!

Until next time, sew pretty!

  1. Completely understand. I have that problem…I’m accumulating fabric left and right! 😀

  2. I think several WIPs is a great thing! It keeps you from getting burned out. As long as you don’t cut your fabric and then forget your plans for it.. Haha just remember what it was for! Do you always make your own patterns? I’d like to give it a shot sometime. You’re very inspiring!

    • No I do not always make my own patterns. Sometimes they are a variation of a block I learned how to make in a class. Also, I nominated you for an award! Check out my latest blog post! Thanks for all you are sharing and know how much I appreciate the thought your put into your content! Have a great one!

  3. I totally get it! I have at least 6, and nothing shows signs of finishing. LIFE sometimes gets in the way! I did get a quilt for church “tied” (That’s how they do it) with our group yesterday…..it is still in the backseat of my car waiting to come in and get bound…..like I said….LIFE…

  4. The one problem for quilting for new babies…the deadline! Your projects look great!

  5. You are a true quilter! I don’t even want to count my WIPs. I’m the same way, get half done with one and then another project sparks my interest. Keep up the good work. Your new Bernina will motivate you!

  6. Can’t wait to see the finished project based on the Flying Geese block; it seems like that block has gotten quite a bit of my attention if I look at my Pinterest board 🙂

  7. You’re not the only quilter with a lot of WIPs! Counting completed tops as WIPs, since they’re not quilted, I have at least a dozen projects underway. I could practice project monogamy, but I find I actually get more done by being able to switch between projects, depending on my mood. Sometimes, I feel like working on something that requires me to follow a pattern. Other times, I’d rather just sew.
