WIP Wednesday – Friendship Quilt

Hey there!  Today I’m linking up with Lee from Freshly Pieced for her Wednesday WIP. With my Sugar Block Club done and my Patchwork Personal Challenge for the week done, I finally got out my baggies of Scrumptious by Bonnie & Camille I cut many months ago and started sewing.

I am using a version of the Friendship Block from Kerry (verykerryberry) & Lynne (Lily’s Quilts) book, 500 Quilt Blocks. This 4 square will eventually turn into a 16 block (10″ square).  Rinse and repeat a few more times until I have a twin sized quilt for our guest room in our basement! I also found 2 yards of another Bonnie & Camille fabric on discount at our local quilt shop so I will incorporate that into the backing somehow.

So besides working on these little cuties the past few days, I finally broke down and bought some paint to redo my studio area in the basement. The mustard/burgundy blend was driving my eyes nuts, so out came the pale blue. I painted one wall to see how it looked and boy what a difference it has made. Of course this has now led to me painting the rest of the studio, re-organizing my fabric, scraps, samples, scrapbooking paper….

On a more exciting note, I celebrated my birthday yesterday! The kiddos were at school, hubby was at work, so I caught up on some DVR shows and worked in my studio. May not sound like an exciting birthday, but for me is was wonderful. And look what I got:

Yes, it’s a sewing machine! Can you tell what kind?

I will share her story and pictures when I get her back from her tune-up.

I think I’m going to name her Gracie. xoxo Cindy

  1. Yummy Bonnie & Camille blocks! I bought myself a Featherweight for my birthday last year. I need to take her out to play more often.

    • Thanks Tina. I am patiently waiting to get her back from the shop. I wanted her first cleaning and tuning from a pro.After that I hope to keep up with the maintenance myself 🙂

  2. Fun fabrics and beautiful project. I see why they call it scruptious.

  3. What a really nice set of fabric for this. Going to be a very pretty quilt. 🙂

  4. Love the blocks. Happy Birthday! Looks like a Featherweight, congratulations!
