WIP Wednesday

by Julie Hirt

This is my first time joining in on the Freshly Pieced WIP Wednesday.  I’m looking forward to seeing what everyone is doing!

Last week I took the plunge and joined a couple of Block of the Month Clubs.  I was able to get caught up in the Lucky Stars group.

January – Funky Star:


February – Exploding Star:


March – Ninja Star:


I’ve also purchased the The Farmer’s Wife Pony Club book. I’m having a blast reading because the stories are so cute.  I’ve decided to incorporate these into my block making schedule, hoping to finish at least one per week.   I think I’m just going to go all scrappy and use whatever fabrics I feel like.  These are 8″ blocks and I’ve stuck with my paper piecing theme and chose “A Dandy” for my first block.

The Pony Club is nice because you can use up some of those tiny pieces that you just can’t throw away.


See the center of that?  It’s a Bubblegum Basics print and I can’t find it ANYWHERE.  It was in the first group of fabrics I ever purchased (just started sewing a couple of years ago) and I saved a 3″ scrap.  So glad I did, I love that print.

I also decided to start Block Rock’n, so I’ll be working on that this weekend.   What are your current projects?
