WIP Wednesday

I've had the most productive week in a long, long time so I was looking forward to this post!  :-)  Let's jump right in shall we?

First, I made lots of progress on my Charming Stars quilt.  All that's left are the inner and outer borders.  I found a nice pink fabric I'm thinking of using for the outer border and I'm planning on finishing the top within the next few days.

Next, I completed the top for the November Schnibble, Drop.  I used Tapestry for this mini quilt and plan on turning it into a pillow as soon as I find the right fabric for the back.

I also completed my first Christmas quilt - Hourglass Patches.  You can get all the stats for this quilt on my 2012 Finishes page.

And finally, I started working on those table runners my sweetie asked me to make.  I decided to go the super simple and easy way with these - I'm sewing together 5" charms!  I chose to work with Independence Trail by Minick & Simpson for Moda.  Love the beautiful shades of blue, red and cream.

So here are the stats for this week's edition of WIP Wednesday:

In Progress
- Drop pillow (need to make the back)
- Charming Stars (need to add borders, baste and quilt)
- 241 Nautical Bag (still need to get interfacing!)
- Table runners for my new bedroom furniture (started piecing)

- Christmas Hourglass Patches

I hope you are having a fantastic week!
