Waiting…and Sewing!

NOTE: If you’re looking for the Looking Glass Blog Hop and giveaway, you’ll find it *here*.  I hope you’ll stay and visit a while! 🙂

I finished the flimsy for my DIL’s wallhanging, have the backing ready and the binding made. I thought I would get it quilted yesterday but guess what? I’m out of batting. I have a roll on order and it should be here soon so I put this project on the shelf until the batting arrives.

I’m also waiting on the fabrics I ordered for the two commissioned quilts I have to do. Just watch – batting and fabric will be delivered on the same day….

So while I had some time to kill I decided to see what I could do with the stack of triangles leftover from my most recent project (which I can’t show you yet).

I ended up with thirty-six 4″ HST’s and played around with the layout and came up with this sweet little mini quilt:

Scrappy Doll Quilt

It measures 25×25 and is made entirely from scraps. Yay me!  I don’t have enough binding left from the big project, so I’m going to have to make a scrappy binding. I do love a scrappy binding! Hopefully I’ll be able to get this one finished today.

Here’s a couple close-ups of the quilting detail:

I also had a sweet delivery the other day of all this goodness:

Yardage and Layer Cakes Palermo

I immediately put it away because it would be too tempting to cut into and I knew I would get sidetracked from my commitments. BUT, since I’m still waiting on deliveries I’m allowed to start a new project, right?

So that’s what I did. I started cutting and I’ve now got all the fabric ready to piece. I’m excited about this one — I hope the plan in my head translates to the quilt! 🙂

That’s what I’m up to this week. I have to stop later today though because I’ve got pie to eat tomorrow and shopping to do on Friday!  I hope you have a chance to do some sewing and I hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving! 🙂

I’m linking up with WIP Wednesday. Be sure to check out all the other great projects.
