WIP Wednesday

As I've said before, I'm feeling a wee bit overwhelmed by all the projects I have on the go. To keep me accountable, I've decided to join the wonderful world of WIP Wednesdays to keep me on track. Sorry in advance for the horrible photos. My basement is dark. I dream of a day-light sewing studio!
So here she nine-patch from CrazyMomQuilts 1st round quilt along. I finally got the sashing cut and pinned...I hate cutting sashing along the length of fabric. It makes me nervous.
And I know why I don't like cutting sashing. I always make a mistake! Can you see my oops?Now I just have to decide if I want to just add a long sashing strip to the right side (then both sides would be a wee bit different) or cut off the sashing strips on the left and add long sashing to both sides. Hmmm...I know what I should do but as always that is more work!
Finally, I got an invoice from this amazing designer from her Studio Sale. And she also emailed to say that it wouldn't fit in an envelope (Yay!). I am so excited to get my goodies in the mail!

A few finishes...

After my last post about all the WIP's I have, I finally have a couple of finishes to show.
First is my DQS7 quilt for my partner. I even made my first hanging sleeve. It was easier than I thought. Just have to make a label and collect some goodies to send.
Second, my Good Ol' Summertime Mini Quilt Swap. This little mermaid is swimming off to my partner tomorrow as soon as I make a label. And finally, my wonky stars for Rachel for our Stash Busting Bee International. They were a blast to make and a great use of little scraps of favourite fabrics. I like the 6.5" size much better than the 12.5". I'll have to add it to the list of must makes...

So the list from last post now looks like this:

Not too bad considering my husband was away for a week and I've had a house FULL of visitors. I'm going to keep working on those WIPs though. NO NEW PROJECTS :(

How many of you do the 'WIP Wednesdays' posts? What else do you do to motivate you to get those projects finished? How many WIP are you comfortable having on the go? How many do you actually have? I'm interested to know...

Happy Sewing!
