WIP Wednesday

i have had a semi-busy week with work, family stuff & the flu. the flu was a total blast......NOT
i still managed to get some stuff done in sewing land.
i quilted this French General quilt which is for my mom & i got the binding sewin on it. i am in the middle of sewing down the binding.
i did finish sewing down the binding on this French General quilt. yep, 2 French General quilts. this one i did as a quilt along with KarrieLyne over at Freckled Whimsy. once our weather gets better here i will get outside & get a pic of it to share with you all.
yesterday in the mail i got 2 packages which i am sure are some more bee blocks.
something to look forward to when i get home this evening.
i also got the ribbon added as well as a bow & a button to this bag. i think that it really brought the bag to life.
i am in the middle of quilting this for my niece. i figured that if i was taking my new niece a quilt that i had to take my other niece one as well. i finished the quilt top last October at a camp & i am just now getting around to quilting it. i am about 1/2 way through it.
i have also started a quilt that is inspired by this book from The Buggy Barn. long story short we have 3 ladies expecting babies in our family this year. i was so hoping that one of them would be having a little boy so i could make this quilt for one of them. needless to say they are all having girls & i was grumbling about it because i really wanted to make this quilt. so, my dad said 'i like trucks & tractors.... you can make it for me.'
so i am doing just that.
i am using the truck & tractor blocks but giving it my renegade twist with a different layout.
if you have never made a Buggy Barn quilt before i strongly encourage you to make one. they are a ton of fun to make. i think this is my 5th or 6th one.
********
up this next week i would love to finish the quilting on the quilt for my niece. plus a week from now i will be at quilt camp. so i have a lot of packing to get done.
i hope you all have an amazing week.
********
one more thing.
just as a reminder i am a guest judge over at Kim's Crafty Apple for Project Quilting.
if you have never seen this give it a click & go check it out.
it should be fun.
