WIP Wednesday

i am back on track with this post.
not much to share as i am sort of taking a break from the holiday sewing rush.

i have finished the top for my cousin's quilt.  she had a little boy the 1st part of December.  the quilt was simple to put together.  i used a charm pack of Pure & some brown Kona cotton.

i am backing it with fleece.  i just need to quilt it & bind it.

i came across this great blog Thirty Hand Made Days & i love it.  i got these great thank you post cards from there which i am sending out for some gifts i got.  Mique has a lot of great crafts & ideas on her site.

super cute!!!!

a new semi related to quilting project that i have started.  like the rest of you i have several old quilting magazines that i can not part with because there are projects/ideas in them that i might need someday.  so..... awhile back i got this idea from someone on Twitter & it has become a new project for me for 2012.

nope i won't be using my sewing machine for this.  i will be using my scanner.  i have started going through the old magazines & tearing out the projects/ideas that i want to keep.  i then scan them into pdf files.  heck of a good idea.  i love Twitter for stuff like that.  it takes time to do this.  that is why its a project for all of 2012.  i did one today so i have a head start.

i have another long weekend coming up so i hope to get the quilting done on the baby quilt & maybe work on a couple other things.

happy sewing.

Cute quilt, great cards, and such a good idea on scanning those patterns in! I need to do that myself - before I drown in quilting magazines!
