Crochet and Quilts: WiP Wednesday

Last week I shared the first of my festive strawberries, or should I say my Christmas ornaments in the making.

I am going to make use of the Ho-Ho-Ho, Let it Snow charm pack in my stash to start on some bodies for these, and I have a couple more festive fabrics on the way that I am looking forward to using as well.

I have finally made good progress on my MSBHQAL quilts. The first top is finished and ready for some quilting.

I’ve been slow to get started on this as it means taking out my Singer and as I have several other smaller projects on the go at the moment and I am keen to see them finished first so I have a bit more space to work with. Space is something I will definitely need because I have a few other quilt tops ready to quilt including my “Insert Retro” quilt and the single block Star Surround quilt I made as part of the recent quilt along over on Happy Quilting. It still needs a name so if anyone has any suggestions I’d love to hear them.

Before I start quilting I would also like to finish the second MSBHQAL quilt top that I have in the making. This one, which I have already named “Odd One Out”, will feature the broken test block I made at the start of the quilt along. It will also be a nine patch quilt and I have the fabrics for the remaining eight blocks cut and all ready to sew. They will be transformed into blocks later in the week when I know I will have a few hours to sit down and motor through them all.

Remember those smaller projects I mentioned earlier, well a couple of those feature some beautiful Liberty Tana Lawn from Very Berry Fabrics. More about those later in the week when they are finished, but for now here’s a little sneak peak.
