Works in Progress Wednesday 7

So...for this week, I have two more Circle of Geese Blocks for my newest baby quilt.

Nevermind the fact that I need to finish quilting my Bloom Bloom Pow quilt.


It will get done. I promise.

Block 2.

Excuse the shiny sun. 

I'm glad to see it here once in a while. If only it would warm up. I'll take 32 degrees at this point.

Block 3. 

You can see that I'm using scrap paper for paper piecing here. 

Hehe. See the music lyrics in the background? 

I love the stained glass look that the backlighting gives the blocks here.

I'm having so much fun sewing these up. They are sooooo much easier than they look!

And what a privilege and honor it is to have a reminder to pray for my friend, her baby, and her family every time I sit down at the sewing machine.

So, I now have 3 total blocks for this quilt. I'm going for 9 total Circle of Geese blocks, plus some sashing and borders. 

I also worked on some Valentine coasters I'm making. 

They're going to be more exciting than this, I promise. But have to do Part A to get to Part B.

I'm hoping to get a tutorial up for y'all here soon. Check back in with me. 

I cranked out 16 of these babies on Sunday.

See how fun they'll be? Embroidery floss, fabric paint, gold thread. 

And I finally bought into the Washi tape trend? Did you know Target carries this stuff now?

I'm not late to the party. ;) It doesn't start until I get there. 

Do join me for the party at Freshly Pieced and Works in Progress Wednesday.


  1. I love the colors in your Circle of Geese blocks.

    1. Thanks so much! I'm having fun just incorporating all the bold colors I can! Thanks for stopping by!

  2. I love those circle of geese blocks! The quilt will be fabulous.

    1. Thanks! I hope so! It's the most "me" quilt I've done so far, so it's been pretty exciting.

  3. Your circle of geese blocks are gorgeous! What are you using for the background fabric? -- I love it!

    1. Thank you!! It's Carolyn Friedlander for Robert Kaufman Crosshatch in Black. I got it from Hawthorne Threads (I love them!). I got the 108" width so that I'd have a lot, but it also comes in a 45" width.

  4. Hmmm....wonder what will become of the Valentine's Day coasters..looking good!

    1. Thank you!! I'm excited about them and hoping they'll turn out the way I plan! If it does, they'll be my first tutorial. :)

  5. That geese block is easy?? Doesn't look it. Where did you get the pattern? Lucky baby to get that quilt. And the V-day coasters are so fresh. Good going!

    1. It really is! If you've done some paper piecing before. I think it's easier to be more accurate with paper piecing. I got the pattern at

      There are also a couple of good tutorials about it. One is here -->

      Thanks for the compliment on the V-day coasters! Fresh - I like it!

      And by the way - did you know that you're a no-reply blogger? I hope you see my reply. If you'd prefer not to be a no-reply blogger, there's a good explanation on how to fix it here -->
