WIP Wednesday!!!

I haven't completely finished anything this week, although I have done A LOT of sewing.  I have nearly completed my quilt top for my "Garden Party" quilt, and I have put the borders on the wedding quilt I need to finish by next month (eek!).

The quilt I have been piecing is the Shadowbox pattern (found here), which makes great use of the fabrics I'm using (Garden Party by Anna Maria Horner).  However, I have found that it is not very well written.  Thankfully the diagrams are easy to follow, and the piecing is fairly simple.

Projects that are being pieced:
Civil War Sampler (still needs it's last border)

Classic Strippy Quilt

Kaffe Fassett Postcard Quilt

Scrappy Friendship Braid

Gabe and Renee's Wedding Quilt
Garden Party Shadowbox

I am still waiting to get my picnic quilt back from the quilter.  They've had it for over a month, so I am hoping I get a call on it soon. :/

One exciting thing that happened this week, is that I get to pick up LOTS of free quilting fabric from my grandmother.  She has decided that she is downsizing all of her quilting fabric (and there is a lot of it), and she wants me to come claim it.  Lord knows I don't need any more fabric, but I can't let her throw it away.  At the very least I'll donate it if I can't use it.  I'm excited to see what goodies she has!  Wish me luck!
