WIP Wednesday: No more little pieces

Hey everybody!  Hope the middle of the week is treating you right.  I've been going nuts at work lately so just a quick update today.  My big finish this week was my green and yellow silk screened quilt, if you didn't see it Monday, definitely check it out.  I'm so excited to have it done.  

Other finishes this week

Other finishes this week include a small secret Christmas project, some pouches I'll post about later this week, and this fun tote bag I sewed up last night.  I wanted something sturdy so I could carry my laptop/lunch/miscellaneous stuff back and forth to work.  The other day I was going through my not-quilting-fabric boxes and I found a big piece of this delightful green and purple home-dec weight fabric.  I have absolutely no idea where it came from, but I just love it!  The colors go really well with the green/yellow quilt I just finished too!  It's a really basic totebag, no pockets/zips/closures or anything.  It does have multiple layers of fabric and interfacing though so that it feels pretty substantial and stands up pretty well.

Progress this week

I made quite a bit of progress on the Nativity quilt- I got all the little pieces cut and fused.  You can see the whole thing below.  Now I just have to layer and quilt it!

No Progress On

Everything else.  The not-done list is getting pretty overwhelming, but it was so exciting to finish the silk screen quilt that I'm trying not to let the UFOs get to me!  Hope you're all having fun!
