It's been a while since I participated in WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced. I always have things in progress, I just don't always have the desire to come blog about it. Blogging sometimes takes a long time... taking the pictures, editing them and uploading them. I also like to re-size my images larger than allowed by blogger so I have to do that manually in the codes. Then the writing... I think the photos take the longest but worth it. I am a fan of pictures when I read blogs and I admit sometimes skip reading the text unless the pictures catch my eye.
So here we go my WIP Wednesday:
I pulled this Autopia panel out of my cabinet the other day and decided to cut into it. I've had plans to make a quilt with it. I'm planning on using the little images for centers of log cabins blocks and then using the scenery panel for the backing. It'll be a baby quilt.
I thought the little cars were pretty cute so I used one in the making of a Show-Off toy zipper pouch. I added some thick red rick rack and love how it looks poking out. It's not done yet but here's the progress. I may just have to add the rick rack to the quilt I make as well.
Next: I have a lot of charm squares left over from my Simple Abundance line. I used all the blues and reds and creams in this quilt. All the pinks, oranges and browns and yellows that are left, are going to be something else. I think just simple half square triangles for a quick quilt.
