wip Wednesday {9/12/12}

I haven't accomplished a lot of sewing lately.  This past weekend, my husband and I went on a whirlwind trip to Estes Park, Colorado for a former coworker's wedding.  So much fun and I can't wait to go back!

I did finally start quilting my polka dot pinwheels quilt--but I didn't get very far.  I'm attempting free motion quilting again and since I'm only quilting in the white areas it's good practice and not quite as frustrating.

I made a cute pair of reversible baby pants for my friend's newborn baby girl (Anna Maria Horner's quick change trousers from Handmade Beginnings).  Now I just need to make a basic top to go with them--any suggestions/links/tutorials?
I'm also making some stretchy headbands to go with the little outfit and still need to make some really big bows/flowers to clip onto the headbands.  Isn't that the best part of dressing a baby girl--the really big headbands? :)
(I'm thinking I need to buy some smaller alligator clips--those are looking really pointy for a newborn!)

Right now the house is quiet and it's raining so it's the perfect opportunity to get off the computer and go get some quilting done!


  1. aww those baby pants are adorable! I am stopping by from the WIP blog hop. I have my WIPs up today if you want to stop by :)

  2. I like the FMQ in the white to let the polka dots pop - good luck with getting more quilting done.

  3. Those pants are really cute. I think I would make a simple A-line sleeveless top to go with them that could be worn with the pants and/or over a onesie for layered warmth. You could line it to make the finishing easy, and it could be reversible too. Cute cute!
