WIP Wednesday and February Goal {ALYOF}

ALYOF February Goal: Finish two Easter/Spring dresses for E! I have a little bit of a start on them, but I still have quite a bit to do on them. The scraps from sewing the patchwork skirt are to be made into a pillow cover and a purse. That fabric was recently won in a giveaway, and I found matching fabrics for the bodice, sash and skirt band. The other dress is from stash fabrics. Both patterns are free from The Cottage Mama

Then, there are these... 9 baby quilt tops that I finished last month. Four are spoken for as I have several friends who are expecting. The others will be kept on hand for future friends' babies. With our #2 on his way, I know I won't have as much (if any) sewing time and I want to be somewhat prepared!

Do I even dare mention these? Two baby quilts ready to be quilted. One for our Gus-Gus and one to keep on hand! These need to be quilted before I can baste the four quilts needing to be done, as I don't have enough safety pins for all these quilts I need to work on!


So, I've updated the WIP list that I started last December... lots of fun still to be had :)

(a list that does not include projects that have fabric pulled but haven't been cut into yet!)

1 baby quilt needing binding
2 baby quilts needing quilting then binding
1 lap quilt needing quilting then binding
9 baby quilt tops needing backs (then quilting and binding)
2 cotton Easter/Spring for E that are part-way done (and one matching "purse")
2 knit dresses for E that have been cut but need some sewing done(!)
1 pillow top ready for quilting and then needing a back


  1. Wow - you made a lot of baby quilt tops! What a good idea to have some on hand and ready to quilt when you need them. I need to start planning a "boy" quilt for the new grandson due in June.

  2. You've been rocking it on the baby quilt tops! And I fully agree that fabric piles that have been pulled but not yet cut into don't count as WIPs. If I counted those I think my WIP list would double!
