Wednesday WIP: This Sewing Factory is Crankin'

I have managed a bit of very focused sewing which is allowing me to reach my goal of finishing a ton of things by the weekend for a swap and to enter two shows.  I wasn't really sure I'd be able to get it all done, but it's happening!!
 
--FINISHED--  Name Game Swap
Finished this mini quilt up and popped it in the mail.  My secret swap partner should be getting it today or tomorrow!  Below is a little sneaky peak.  I'll show the whole thing once it reaches it's new home!


--GETTING BINDING--  {At Sunrise}: Confetti Quilt
My confetti style quilt which you can see the making of here, is ready for binding.  In fact, I did pick out and attach the binding to the front (not pictured).  So, all I have to do is hand sew the binding to the back, make a hanging sleeve and label... and this one is D-U-N!

And yes.... seriously, this is hands down one of my favorite pieces!  It's a scene which I have had in my head for a long time and I'm glad it's finally down in fiber!


--IN PROGRESS--  {The Lake}: Landscape Quilt
You might remember that I started this art quilt in a guild class recently and I am determined to finish it in time for the next guild meeting (next Tuesday)... and that also means that I could still enter it in my upcoming work art show. 

I spent time last night cutting out the rest of the template pieces, cutting mountain and sky fabrics, and sticking them together.  The hardest part of this freezer paper technique is that you can't see the work progress because it's, well, covered with freezer paper.  I'm going to leave you with this teasing picture of it. 

If you're wondering... I did pull the freezer paper off the whole thing last night and I adore it so far.  I also gave it a backing, basted it, and started to quilt it.  Feels like my little sewing 'factory' is really humming along nicely!! 


--ON PAUSE-- 

Laughing Leaves with Frieda Anderson
More of the project can be seen here.  I am really darn tempted to try and finish up this piece over the weekend as well.  I know.. I know.. call me crazy, but this would give me a final piece to enter in my work art show!

Spinning Starlets {English Paper Piecing} -- a.k.a. I've reached a new level of crazy!
I will pick this up again once my quilt show pieces are d-o-n-e; only 6 weeks to go!  Following along with the Block Party at Selfsewn; creating Rose Stars.  You can read about my overall experience with English Paper Piecing!

Still no deadline for this one.  The way things are going, maybe I pick this up once my show pieces are done?
