WIP Wednesday #14

After a little break from sewing I'm finally able to give an update on my WIP's.

1.  The Dr. Seuss quilt.  That's right it still isn't finished.  I re-pieced the back, layered and basted it then lost steam.  I am determined to quilt it today during naptime.  Here are more pictures of it:

I promise to not post anymore pictures until it's completed.  (It is cute though)

2.  The Postage Stamp Quilt Along:

I have made two of the strip sets.  Only fourteen more to go!

I am absolutely falling in love with pre-cuts after working on this project!  I would have had to throw in the towel if I'd cut everything out myself!  I was thinking about giving this away as a gift, but I'm definitely going to keep it for myself.  I hope I'm not always so greedy!

Of course there has been plenty of this:

and this:

and a little of this:

to keep me busy the past two weeks! 

We just got word that Graham is coming home this week (probably Friday)!  I know that my works in progress will come to a screeching halt for a little while after that, but it will be so worth it!  I better go work on that quilt right now!

Go see what everyone else is up to at Lee's!

Awwww, the teeny baby stage goes by in a blink. He's such a cutie, I'm so glad to hear he's coming home soon. And looks like you made good progress on the Dr. Seuss quilt, it's going to be darling.
