Work In Progress

Yes!  It's Work in Progress Wednesday peeps and do I have some progress for you!!

The much blogged about MiL quilt top and back are finished AND are now being happily basted and quilted by the trusted hands of my favourite long arm quilter - hooray!!!  

Good news is my MiL loves it - massive exhale of air - Here's a few pics for you ...

With 774 squares there had to be an obligatory stained glass shot

I did have the odd hiccup along the way!

Indoor shot
Look at those colours outdoors!

MiL has landed on our fine shores and is currently sipping a cup of tea whilst I whip up this post.  That's right, I'm a hopeless secret keeper when it comes to gifts and just had to show her the quilt top as soon as she landed (I get that from my mum - another hopeless secret gift giver - seriously folks, Secret Santa is wasted on us!)

In other news ... I have hand pieced two other Farmers Wife quilt blocks ... I give you Block 91 "Strawberry Basket"

and Block 10 "Bow Tie"

That's two more to add to the Progress Chart ... happy days!

See you all over at Freshly Pieced for WIP Wednesday.



  1. Wow. Well done you! It turned out really well. Love the bowtie block!

  2. I love that setting for your larger blocks in the MIL quilt.

  3. The quilt is gorgeous.... love the paper pieced blocks incorporated into the scrappy blocks! I know your MiL will adore it when it is all finished up.
    And your FWSQ blocks are gorgeous. I am starting them, but by machine sewing!. I admire your handwork so much!


  4. Well done getting your MIL's quilt top finished in time for her arrival! Your FW blocks are looking fabulous. You'll have lots of time to get more done while chatting and catching up with your MIL.

  5. Laughed at the photo of the hiccup, thanks for sharing it - glad other people do that sort of thing too! I think the bow tie one is my favourite so far, with those fussy cut flowers and greys.

  6. Great job getting your mil quilt done and to the quilters!!! It's like you didn't have a delay at all. Gorgeous FW blocks too! enjoy your visit with your in laws!!

  7. Wow! It is gorgeous and I bet your MIL is sew pleased. Can't wait to see the finished quilt! Enjoy your visit together!
