WIP Wednesday-The One Where I Regroup

I am known to be a bit scatterbrained and forgetful. After all the excitement this past week of finalizing and finally publishing my first pattern, I felt a bit lost in my head and in my sewing space. 

While taking pictures, I realized I've only really done any sewing on one thing, and it's a new project! Well, I take that back, I finished a commission job and finished putting a quilt top together, but more on those later. 

So this post will pretty much be Prep Party Part 2. At least there was progress on the prepping though! Hopefully this will help clear my brain and get me on track to actually sew these projects.

First up is the new project, Mod Pop part 2. Rhonda, the owner of my fabulous local quilt shop, asked me to make her a store sample. She's wanting to sell my pattern in her shop, once I get it printed that is, and wants a sample that is made of fabrics she carries. Smart, right? By the way, if any of you are looking for more Hope Valley, she carries almost the entire collection and is more than happy to ship it out to you. 


So far I have all of the pieces cut, the curves pieced and 4 blocks made. It is going together just as fast as I remember the first one, if not faster, and I hope to have the top pieced by the weekend. 

If you follow me on Instagram, you would have seen this little fabric combo pop up not too long ago


Fabrics and interfacings have been cut, this will be my new bag. I am absolutely LOVING the combo of those two prints from The Birds and The Bees. I think I'll make myself a little wallet with the scraps too.

I cut the fabrics to go with those cardboard pieces I cut out during the prep party. I still can't say much since these are gifts. Notice the presence of that same fabric combo? Hehe, that will me mine. I love it I say!


And this stack of fabric still taunts me


This is for the Proverbial Quilt Along over at Poppyprint and will be an anniversary gift for the hubs. I have 6 weeks until the big day, better get crackin'! 

These are all of my pressing projects. We won't talk about the ones that are on the back burner or are just ideas in my head.

I'm glad I'm not the only scatterbrained one. Mine is 100% my own fault tho.

I...want to steal that bag. Btw. So gorgeous even when it isn't put together yet!
