WIP Wednesday {2/13/13}

Lent starts today and I have decided to greatly limit my time spent on the internet. I'm aiming for just 15 minutes a day to check e-mail, facebook, flickr, pinterest and keep up on the blogs I like to follow. (Thank goodness I don't get the internet on my phone.) I waste so much time on the internet when I should be sewing or cleaning or paying more attention to my family.  (Like right now, my husband is trying to have a conversation with me and I'm typing away on a blog post.) So it's time to step back and refocus. I hope to make lots of progress on my WIPs!

This week I finished my February quilt block for WISH at do. Good Stitches. We made Road to Tennessee blocks in blue, green and gray. I think they're going to make a beautiful quilt.
And I'm so excited! There was an opening for a quilter in my circle so I'm going to get to plan and put quilts together for the group starting in April!

I started a few bibs for Craft Hope's Project 20:  Hope for China.
The bib on the left is this Purl Bee pattern and it's my new favorite bib pattern. I love the shape.

And I did pull a WIP out of the pile and have almost finished quilting it. I think this quilt top is at least two or three years old and it may have been one of the first tops I made that wasn't simple patchwork squares and that came from a "pattern." I used Elizabeth Hartman's Charm Squares Baby Quilt tutorial. I cut my own charm squares from some clearance Deb Strain fat quarters (my first purchase from a "real" quilt shop). I'm not sure what fabric line they're from. My Bernina has a wavy stitch that I've been wanting to try and I really like it--it reminds me of ric rac.

After this one is finished, just two more quilt tops in the WIP pile!
