WIP Wednesday 6.1.11

I can't believe it's June already!
My biggest WIP right now is my garden!
I need to finish up gifts for the girls' teachers!
Here is a start on one project . . . I'll show more when it's done.
I'm trying to copy one of my favorite art projects their teacher did with them this year.

I finished a couple of projects this week.
I'll do a separate post on my Bottled Rainbows quilt in a few days --
today I delivered it to my college for the alumni art fair.
Hopefully this weekend I'll have a chance to take pictures
of it in the college's art museum!

The second finish of the week was this cathedral windows pillow:
More about this pillow here.
This is the only other WIP that I made progress on this week,
a charm square with 1 inch borders quilt, idea copied from Poppyprint:

My little artists helped me hold this little quilt in the wind for photos.
I think it needs a border of Kona coal or light gray to complete it.
After these 2 projects, I'm ready to be done with Sherbet Pips for awhile!

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced


  1. Hey, Michelle - I just love that Sherbet Pips pillow so much - would it bother you if I made one for myself in the Pips with the gray?

  17. I'm loving the blue striped quilt. It reminds menof waves.

    The pips quilt is lovely! I've been thinking about doing that style with the varying shades for the sashing but I wasn't sure I would like it. You just saved me some time and cutting.

  18. I can't believe it's June already either! I love, love, love your sherbert pips pillow and quilt! I have a jelly roll of pips that I'm pondering on using soon.... :-)
