WIP Wednesday - June 4th Edition

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

Happy WIP Wednesday! Today my girls and I are off to our local food bank to volunteer. They need people in their warehouse to help sort and box up donations and I think this is a great way for my girls to spend a bit of their summer, helping out when we can! For now, on to the fabric...

I am taking part in the Skill Builder BOM club, with Pile o Fabric, and here is my progress thus far, I need to quilt them as it is a QAYG and also I need to catch up, I think I am two blocks behind.


1. Skill Builder 1&2 ready to go, 2. Skill Builder BOM, block 3, 3. Skill Builder, BOM block 4, 4. Skill Builder, BOM block 5, 5. Skill Builder, BOM block 6, 6. Skill Builder BOM, block 7, 7. Skill Builder BOM, block 8 -replacement

 Also this is under way... my first ever Dresden.... I am loving it so far! I kinda feel like I want to Dresdenize everything now! lol


I also have :

UFOs: a lap quilt, a toddler quilt, and an ugly table runner lol

finished this week: zip, zilch, zero! Wish me luck for next week!

This is my favorite post every week so I really look forward to checking out whatever others are working on and getting some inspiration! Thanks for stopping by, and if you take the time to comment, ty so much, it makes my day! Have a wonderful Wednesday!

  1. Loving your skill builder blocks, the colours are so striking! Especially the hexagons, I love hexie quilts but never have the patience to get more than a few blocks pieced!
