WIP Wednesday

Well, it's time for another WIP Wednesday, and boy do I have a lot in progress!
First off, I finally finished the top of my husband's manly quilt!  Now I'm scared.  This thing is a MONSTER.  I don't know how I'm ever going to quilt it.  It's so big that I had nowhere to hang it for a good picture, so here's part of it hanging over the railing above the stairs:

I also decided it was high time I finish up my Nestie quilt along quilt.  I had pretty much abandoned it, since my husband decided he wanted this purple quilt.  Then I thought, if I make it a baby-sized quilt, I will be done in no time!  After all, I really love the fabric.  Here's the top, but I have everything ready to go to quilt and bind it already, too:

Last (but certainly not least!) I have four more Bottled Rainbows blocks to share.  May I present to you:



I am LOVING these blocks!  It's so relaxing to sit there & sew the little pieces on.   Much as I like the process, though, I can't wait for it to be done!  I'm linking up again this week to Lee's WIP Wednesday.  Go on over & see what everyone else is up to!


  1. I love both the quilt tops, but the one for your husband is especially awesome.

  2. Your quilt tops are fantastic--I love them both! And the rainbow blocks are adorable.

  3. Your rainbow blocks are 'sew' cute! Love that purple and black quilt. maybe time to send one out to a long-arm quilter? That is my plan with the queen size quilt I am working on now. I also love your nested quilt. I need to do one of those. Maybe I should start my projects list for 2012?

  4. Wow!! What a terrific man-quilt! The B&W is ultra-appealing, too. And I'm totally drooling on your rainbows. All of these projects are wonderful. Just come on over to my house if any turn up missing! ;D

  5. Love your rainbow blocks! And hubbie's quilt is most definitely a doozie. Don't know if you have a long-arm, but it's going to be great fun if you don't!

  6. I love your bottled rainbows blocks, especially the raspberry one with the umbrella!

    I just started mine -- 3 down! Yay!!!
