WIP Wednesday

Another week has gone by so quickly. It was a good sewing week with lots of work done

FINISHED PROJECTS:

Sweet Summer Cottage
I finally finished my hexie quilt. I began it last Summer, it was a very challenging project which involved about 540 hand sewn hexies.


SWAPs AND PIFs :
I love swapping and this past week-end I worked in some swap projects and also made some stuff for my PIF recipients

A Mug Rug


Two pillow covers


ON GOING PROJECTS:

Penelope's Paradise

The inner border in on. Now I'm thinking about a pieced outer border. What do you think? I'm opened for any suggestions, please fell free to give them to me.


Granny Squares Quilt

My squares are growing slowly, here's another one

 That's it for this Wednesday, but if you would like to check on more great sewing projects just link with Lee at Freshly Pieced and join the fun

Your summer cottage is beautiful. It sure looks like hard work. Well done. I did an EPP last year and almost didn't finish it but yours is well worth the many hours you undoubtly has put into it.

That hexie quilt looks like a labor of love!! I can't believe the patience and sheer tenacity it takes to complete one of those, and yours came out wonderfully! Congratulations on the finish!

Maybe a piano keys border for the outside border on your Penelope's paradise? I'm not sure. I think a solid border would also be super striking!

You have so many wonderful projects going on- I'm impressed with the hexies - geez! I particularly love your Penelope's Paradise. I think a pieced outer border would look cool.
