Work-In-Progress Wednesday & Don't you forget about me.....

Kind of a catchy tune from a seminal movie from my teenage years.  I was more of a Sixteen Candles/Jake Ryan fan than The Breakfast Club but I was humming this tune to myself last night while washing dishes and thinking about you all..

I'm still here!  

I'm crazy busy with my research paper but I have had a few moments to come up to breathe and craft.  Love those moments.  So here is my current WIP.  This is the MIL Christmas Gift Quilt Version II.   Please go check out Lee at Freshly Pieced to check out more WIP Wednesday's.

Blocks laid out but not sewn together

Took these photos last night in the awful lighting...I'll have this pieced together by the weekend and get a photo outside.  The fabrics are beautiful but I still don't know if they go together.  Remember I'm color challenged!  

Time to get back to research and writing.  Eight more days until I can craft all day!  


  1. Ohhh love the fabrics! Good luck on your research paper.

  2. I think the fabrics are very unique together. I like it!

  3. I am impressed that you are finding time to sew while working on your research paper! Your quilt will be beautiful once it's finished!

  4. LOL I think that was the theme for our senior prom (boy that date me, eh?)! Love the fabrics. Good luck with your studies. That's more important, plus you ARE paying for it (sigh). But quilting is a great way to take a break!

  5. I love it that such simple shapes can make an interesting quilt. Nice work!

  6. Pretty colors! Glad you got a chance to work on it. Good luck finishing your paper! (Boy am I glad those days are behind me.)

    Thanks for linking up with WIP Wednesday - have a productive week!

  7. I love the fabirs you used. Good luck working on your quilt. It will be a gorgeous quilt.
