WIP Wednesday

Lots of new projects this week... I finished up Bent Rainbows last week and haven't touched a stinkin' thing since! But since Lee's WIP Wednesday posts really help keep me on track, I figured it was high time I get back to it.

So this week - new projects! I have my first-ever-super-secret project in the works, and I'm beyond excited. The fabric is below... who can name it? Hint... you can probably search the posts I've made and found the manufacturer listed in 8 out of 10 posts.

I've also joined up on a Pay-It-Forward post from facebook, so I'll be doing a bunch of little projects coming up. I finished a tote bag and an ipad cover this weekend - as soon as they reach their recipients, I'll post pictures. :)

So, let's see.
In progress, 1. We have the super secret quilt project with the awesome fabric above.
9 pay-it-forwards... one down. 8 to go!
Kid's quilt... remember when I talked about him wanting to sew? Yep, haven't cut that yet. I'm working on cutting it down to 3.5" squares so we can start sewing soon!
Oh! And a Swoon Quilt! I'd made some of these blocks for the back of my KSQA quilt, and really quite like the look. They're massive, so I've scaled them down to 18" blocks. I've mostly finished pulling fabrics - got a little more to go - and then I'll be starting on the construction!

My progress feels pretty lame right now, gotta be honest. I just had so many finishes in December, and spent most of January making clothes for our camping trip... It's like I'm starting fresh! But hey, fresh is good.

One question for y'all...
if you had 1.5 yards of 60" chalk cloth, what would you make?

Ooooh, love those super-secret projects! It's hard to work on something you can't put on your blog, though! It is lovely fabric, although unfortunately I have no guesses what it is. Thanks for linking up to WIP Wednesday, have fun with that stack! : )

It's always fun to guess what people are working on - good luck keeping it a secret - it's always hard for me not to say anything. :)
