WiP Wednesday: First list of the new year!

Oh boy, I sure am glad that WiP Wednesday is back.  I totally need the accountability to stay on track with my projects!!  Apparently, my works-in-progress have a tendency to multiply when they aren't being reported...

Here's what I've finished up this week:

Introducing: Modern Halves quilt tutorial

Fat Quarterly Aurifil Challenge - My Results


Here's what I've got cooking and simmering:

My next pattern, #103 - Just need to finish binding this one, take some awesome photos and edit the pattern.  I'm hoping to release this pattern next week, so stay tuned!

Pattern #3 - almost done!

Camera strap for my new camera - I am loving using my new camera, but it sure could use a fun cover for my camera strap, so I pulled some fabrics to make a simple patchwork strap cover.

Stash Trad block for Lynne - Lynne asked for a bright and colorful LynneBobSquarePants using Kona Charcoal for the neutral, which I actually had to order, since we work from our stash. Couldn't believe there was a shade of Kona gray that I didn't have!  For the record, Charcoal is the darkest Kona gray, just a touch darker than Kona Coal.  Something tells me I won't have any trouble finding colorful scraps to use for this one...

No shortage of colorful scraps at my house!

{Sew} Beautiful block for Cherie - Cherie drafted a gorgeous 18" Carpenter Star block for us this month, and my fabric pairing included one of my favorite Heirloom prints paired with some Secret Garden, which is going to be super pretty.

String Me Along block for Bree - Just got my fabric in the mail yesterday.  Bree has asked for Polaroid-esque shots a la Corey's awesome Ringo Pie block from last year, and I'm hoping I can do it justice.

4x5 Blocks - All cut out, ready to sew!  I'm stitching up weathervane blocks for my bee friends, using the same block I used for my Fat Quarterly challenge mini.  If anyone is interested in a tute for that block, I could definitely put one together, it's a great block!  Speaking of 4x5, quarter 1 sign-ups are open now!
