wall of progress...

This first pic shows my sewing space (rather messy today) and my new 'wall of progress' I have attached hooks to the walls and using trouser hangers I can now hang up my works in progress so that I can have a good look at them and not hide them away in a cupboard. Only problem is there is only room for three quilts ;) You can also see my two other ongoing projects in the picture, 4sdqs5 on the table and big bed quilt (black and white with red backing) hanging over the chair.

This is the first of the projects I pieced on the weekend, it was sandwiched and quilted last night so is just waiting for binding. It's about a metre square and will be a play quilt for B. I'll blog more pics once it is bound and washed.

And I also pieced the hungry caterpillar kit that I bought last year, I wanted to use the scraps for another project this week, so thought the best way to know what would be left over would be to piece the top. It's not likely to progress much for a while as it's intended for B's single bed, and she's a way off that yet.

So good progress has been made this week. If only every week could be as productive.

There's some really nice work there! I'd like to see the other quilts properly (the Farmers' Market and the black and red one)

Thanks Emma, the farmers market hasn't progressed since I first posted it though, it is just charm squares, although I'm considering doing more to it now I've had a bit of practice... The black and red is currently being bound, so pics to come next week some time...

Thanks for your lovely comments.

Wow you're really getting stuck into things!
The Very Hungry Caterpillar is one of my alltime fave books for kids, I've been thinking I might get some fabric to turn into a bag.

That's great Esther. You've been such a busy quilter lately :-) I look forward to seeing your log cabin finished.

Esther, that quilt looks amazing and it is also one of our favourite books. B will adore it when she gets into her big girls bed!
