WIP Wednesday

I finally made the cute Star Wars cross-stitch my sister sent into a pillow for Gregory:
 

I have a whole lot of cutting going on for my X Plus quilt.  It was a little hard to cut into my most precious Liberty Lifestyle fabrics but I know it will be worth it!


I've made a few more blocks - these are so addicting!

 
It took a while, but I cut up my own stash-made layer cake into the triangular pieces needed to make a giant Crackle quilt.
 
 
This is the result when you sew all of the pieces together.  Isn't it striking?  I honestly think this pattern has the potential to catch on like a lot of the popular patterns out there - it's so fun and easy.
 

I scored some vintage fabric and completed tiny cross stitch pieces at a yard sale.  So sweet!


I've listed a few fabric bundles in my etsy shop.  I've fallen hard for Shelburne Falls- I ordered a half yard set and cut it in half - it's much cheaper than buying the pre-cut bundles released by Free Spirit.  I also finally splurged on some Little Folks - I missed out on the recent $6 yd. sales (darnit!) but figured I better buy some before it's all really gone.  I am trying to stick to just fat quarters lately - so I also listed a Little Folks FQ bundle too.

 
I am finally actually linking up with WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced- I feel more motivated to connect with other bloggers and I am excited to do this more regularly.
