W.I.P. WEDNESDAY

It's been quite some time since I have linked up with a work in progress post over at Freshly Pieced so I thought I would do that today.

Cannery Row is growing. These blocks aren't sewn together yet, but that's 104" of goodness you're looking at right there. I have been after hubby to knock out a wall in the kitchen for ages. If he won't do it to accommodate our big family dinners, perhaps when he sees I need more space for quilting he will?



These lovely Churn Dash blocks have been arriving in the mail. They will become another charity quilt for Hospice. I love making these quilts



My son came for breakfast sporting his dreadlocks. I need to finish his hat a.s.a.p         : )


The hat is called 'the woodcutter'. I really like the texture of the pattern

and lastly, look what followed me home from work yesterday. A new kit! I'll be plugging away on this brushed cotton quilt in the next few days. I think it will be fun!

Those colors in your new kit are great! Fun and bright! Gonna be a cute quilt! Tell hubby that quilting is IMPORTANT, so, knock out that wall;)

I love this quilt! I downloaded the pattern and few weeks ago, thinking it would be a good way to use up more scraps!

Anne said...

Good luck getting your husband to knock down the wall. Quilting certainly deserves more room.

Those flying geese are gorgeous! Just love all those solids together - well done :-)

Lucy @ Charm About You said...

Great projects and I'm sure he'll look handsome in that gorgeous hat ;-)

Gina said...

Cannery Row is awesome but Mixed Bag looks pretty fun too!! Who knew your knitting had ulterior motives :)

All such lovely photos! I love the 104" beauty, the colours are gorgeous!! Is that the final layout? And your new pattern is very modern! The rainbow colours which make up the negative space are very interesting!

Love those colours in your new kit, yummy!
Love the quilt blocks too and good luck with getting the wall knocked down. Personally I think its a must, x

It's funny how fabric follows one home, isn't it!! It happens to me all the time!! I would think that an extended table and space would be the top priority of your husband!! Just out of curiosity...how do you fit all your expanding brood in at family dinners? Love cannery row blocks, they pack a punch of vibrant colour!!

Hi Carla! I start to be 'green' here (from envy). Those solids have the most beautiful colours and the pattern is fantastic!!!
And the NEW Fabrics - don't know what to say, just wish they were mine!
I love also the knitting pattern and the yarn you use. x Teje

I absolutely love the way Cannery Row is going. It's going to be awesome (and I hope you can get your wall taken down for it:-))

some really lovely projects happening there!

Emma said...

Your cannery row is coming along beautifully.

Teresa in Music City said...

Ooooo I love your new quilt pattern and the fabrics - yum!!! And the solid blocks are really nice - you definitely need more room :*)

Carla said...

I sure like all of your projects, Carla. And, just a suggestion...I had a friend once who took matters into her own hands and knocked out a wall in her house....it then became hubby's job to "fix it"! True story!! LOL

Cathy said...

Love your solids quilt in progress and speech bubbles on fabric? So cool!

Janine said...

Your cannery Row is gorgeous and I love the pattern on the hat :)

You sure have gotten a lot accomplished on Cannery Row! I may have to invest in that pattern! And, Mixed Bag looks delightful!
