WIP Wednesday- rollin' and spinnin'

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

Another week, another Wednesday. It seems like 2012 is just flying by. I've got my list for 2012 finishes and making good progress. I'm finishing up a roller rink quilt for a wedding quilt. Just need to sew down the binding and wash it!

from this.... this
Leuko helped. 

I finally made the zakka zig-zag tote albeit a little late. It was project 1 of 24 in the SAL which is now over. I modified it with a reinforced canvas bottom. I also made the bag a bit shorter. I took this guy all the way to the other side of the city for a sewing expo. Not as cool as if I could go to the sewing summit but oh well!

Some snowball blocks for a donation quilt for a little boy who likes red, green, black, footballs and cheetah. Not my usual color scheme to say the least.

And even thought the title of my post would suggest I would have lots of spinning stars to show you, alas, no. Stars are up next.

This little block says "make me some friends. I'm lonely"

Oh FYI, Hawthorne Threads is having a tent sale. I know I caved and bought some much needed stash builders. Join me in the fray, won't you?
