wip wednesday: lots to do

I have several projects in the works but I'm busy riding on the high of releasing my first pattern! The Humperdink Tote is available on Craftsy and you can read more about it in my last post.

Excitement aside, I really do need to get on the ball because I have two commission quilts to finish er, start. I'm using these soft florals to create an Xs and Os baby quilt for a little girl due in July. I need to add some bright coordinating prints. Any suggestions would be most welcome!

I also have plans to use these purple and silver prints to make an hourglass quilt for another little girl, due in June.

I'm also pleased to have finished a house block for Jamie:
Fcmqg bee house block for jamie
and improv blocks for Hannah,
Block 1 for Hannah fcmqg

Fcmqg bee block 2 for Hannah

which means I've fulfilled my guild bee commitments for this round! We have exciting plans for the next round and I can't wait to start!

I'm linking up today with Freshly Pieced for WIP Wednesday and I Have To Say for Show and Tell Tuesday!

open for business!

I'm so excited to announce that I've opened a pattern shop on Craftsy!

My first pattern is the Humperdink Tote! It is a big, zippered tote bag with lots of room for everything! Pack it as a carry-on when traveling, fill it up for a weekend getaway, or put in everything you need for a sewing day with friends.

The tote has two big exterior pockets, one small interior pocket, and a zipper that extends on one side so that it fully opens. It measures approximately 15 1/2 inches tall, 20" wide at the top, and 7" deep.
