W.i.P.’s September

Here’s a peek at some W.i.P.’s (work in progress) that can be found in my sewing room.

I’m making progress (but still not caught up) on my Penny Sampler quilt which has consisted of a lot of applique so far.  This is part of an online class I’m taking through Stitched in Color.

I couldn’t resist the Super-sized Sampler Block Along at Little Miss Shabby any longer.  I’ve made the first 18 1/2″ block, and I’m hooked!  Three more to go!

I finished a quilt and it only took me two years!  Or has it been three?  This is a signature quilt that I made (with the help of my sister) as a wedding gift for our niece.

      Where can I get a copy of the signature quilt pattern including the flowers and the leaves+vines. I tried the Quilter’s World website and cannot find the August 2011 issue. Can I buy a copy from your. Thank you, Ruth
