Wednesday WIP - Jan 29th

Jan 29th??? Did I really just type that. 2014 is off to a bang, holy smokes, time is flying!

I have not been too busy this week with sewing, I was blessed by my husband with a cold from hell so I was not doing too much for a few days!

I did finish my owl plushies :) I shared them yesterday but here they are again

and I actually basted my Star Surround quilt from the quilt a long ... quilting is going to happen! I just know. I feel another finish coming on!

I am slowly here and there adding to my finished hexies.... it will be a small project, its the first time I am trying them and so far me no likey lol

and lastly,  just last night I cut out the papers for the Alison Glass " Feathers " quilt pattern (paper piecing) as I will be making one for my youngest's bed. I am waiting for background fabric to arrive though so I won't be starting right away. I also plan to work on this here and there and not all in one fell swoop... as with hexies, I only want to do so much paper piecing at a time lol

Now... I am off to hop, I love being inspired and see the progress that everyone is making! Happy Wednesday!



  1. Lovely Project you are making and the owls are to cute :)

  2. i love the star quilt. pretty colors against the blue background!

  3. Tanyia,
    I love your Star Surround colors and the owls are adorable! Looking forward to seeing the Allison Glass PP pattern in the works as I know you are too;)

    i was blessed by the hubby with a cold too:(

  4. the owl softies are darling!!! great fabric selection.

    I love the pairing of the blue with the prints in your star quilt. awesome. or maybe "stellar" is better? =)

    I was not completely taken with the epp thing at first, either, but keep at it. and please bring them by my monthly epp link party "in hand" at splish splash stash! maybe you'll get some encouragement/inspiration there.

  5. Your Star Surround quilt is awesome! Pinned!

  6. Your owl plushies are so cute. I love the colors in your star surround quilt. I have been wanting to make a quilt with a navy background just not sure what with it yet, but it will have a navy background. =)

  7. Your star quilt looks lovely. I haven't tried hexies - I like the look, not sure if I have the patience. LOL. Hope you are well and truly over your cold now.

  8. Hi Tanyia, I'm visiting from GYB and must say that your plushie owls are fantastic. My daughter, also 21, makes some little hand sewn owls from vintage fabric. We love owls; you must too. Off now to read more of your posts. :)

  9. Love the owls, they are so cute! Your star surround looks great! I love having a basted quilt ready to quilt on!

  10. Hi Tanyia! I seen your face all around while you were hopping and would like to invite you to hop on over and join in my new linky party! Your owls are sweet! Looking forward to seeing your Star Surround top all quilted up. Love the dark background you chose. Nice to meet you!

  11. Awesome star quilt! how do you baste your quilt so well. I always struggle with that stage
