W.I.P. Wednesday and other stuff

Hello Everyone!

I decided that I would try and do W.I.P. Wednesday with Freshly Pieced. 

I am currently working on the following:

Farmers Wife Sampler Quilt - Cut out the pieces to the 6th block.  I am way behind!

Summer Sampler Series - I am currently working on the 6th block.  I am behind on that one to.

Tutorial Tuesday - A Series I am starting.  I am going to be posting a new tutorial every Tuesday for a Block out of either the Encyclopedia of Pieced Quilt Patterns by Barbara Brackman or from 5,500 Quilt Block Designs by Maggie Malone.  Sometimes it will be from both.

What I didn't work on in the past week:
Double Wedding Ring (king size quilt)
Day and Night Quilt (Queen size)
Spider Web Quilt
Mini Star Quilt
Twice as Nice and More Quilts (3 quilts total with Sunkissed fabric)
Christmas Quilt (I am hand piecing this quilt.  I only work on it during Church and when I need to "wait".

Need to start:
Twice as Nice and More Quilts (3 quilt total with other fabric)
Quilts for 2 grandsons and 2 granddaughters
Quilt for my 7 year old son (He will be helping me make his "I Spy" quilt, Still looking for a good pattern for this)
Christmas gifts

I know it is a lot to work on, especially when I work full time.  My son has a busy schedule with dance classes, gymnastics, and soccer.  I may also start (depending on the interview) being an sewing instruction for a local store.  I am currently in the process of scheduling my evenings so I can accomplish some things during the week.

Happy Crafting,

I'm "attempting" the Farmers Wife too. I've been quilting for almost 35 years and the size of the block in this quilt still intimidate me. How are you doing yours? machine, paperpieced, or hand pieced? =)
