WiP Wednesday: getting ready for vacation

What do you take on vacation with you?? I am not really a beach person though the rest of my family are, so I always try to take my sewing with me.

So next week, we are off to the beach for the week….and I am taking with me a few of my WiPs. This week, is all about getting packed and preparing the projects.

First up, Phased Circles: Background fabric selected
Phased Circles Outside

The plan is to balance the color, so I am using Kona Pepper, with black, white and grey Carolyn Friedlander fabrics.


Project 2: Spoonflower Class – Row 3 blocks, plan is to finish row 3 and minimally finish the quilt top.

Last night, I spent some time cutting out all the pieces of that 3rd row.

Project 3: Jungle Ave Quilt. Fabrics arrived and are beautiful, so I will start to plan and cut the quilt top.

Project 4: Of course, you need to keep a 4 1/2 hour drive interesting…so you guessed, it the hexagon quilt is coming with us.

So, that is my plan for next week…the rest of the week is prepping and cutting. Linking up with Lee over at Freshly Pieced for WiP Wednesday.

    Sounds like an awesome week! I wish I could spend a week at the beach sewing! Every time we’ve gone to the beach since having kids every ounce of my planning, time and energy has been spent preparing them and packing their stuff…so yeah I have no idea what kind of sewing might be appropriate. Hope you have a wonderful vacation!

    Wow, I love your eye for color! Those quilts are amazing. I just did my first hexagon project and it’s always nice to see more modern projects done with EPP.

    Enjoy yourself! I hope you get as much sewing and reading and family snuggles as you possibly can. Grab some sunshine, too! I’m sure the hexies match well with an afternoon glass of wine on the deck. 🙂

    I love the WIP you have on the go at the moment! I haven’t be doing any quilting for the last months – my focus has been completely on bags etc, but seeing yours is inspiring me to make some time to quilt again. Have a wonderful trip!
