WIP Wednesday Already?

What a week it has been!  I feel like I am all over the place, but standing still at the same time.  As usual this Wednesday, I am participating in WIP Wednesday over at Freshly Pieced.  Use the button on the right of my blog to hop over there and see what other quilters are posting.  Each week I find a new blog that brightens my day.

Starting Up
Community Quilt
I am absolutely thrilled with the response this project has received.  Many, many thanks to all of you who have contacted me and are planning to contribute squares. I have started to receive fabric from some folks and have been diligently cutting 2 inch squares over the past two evenings.  You guys really have adorable scraps!  I am having a great time peeking into your stashes :)  If you are interested in contributing, you can email me at to participate. I am so very grateful, once again, for the generosity of this quilting community! 

Several Others
Birdie Stitches, hosted by Little Miss Shabby, and my batik Irish Chain (fabric left) will start up next week.  I was mostly fabric shopping for them this past week.  It's funny how long it takes to buy a white background. Tone on tone or solid? White, eggshell, snow or cream?  Whew!  The options are endless!  Good old Kona.

Currently In Progress
Sew Mama Sew Giveaway
Like so many of you, I am participating in the Sew Mama Sew giveaway. You can just page down a bit or click here to take your chances winning a patchwork bag (photo right).  The drawing closes Wednesday night and even I am excited to see who wins! Blog hopping has taken a HUGE amount of my time this past week and it has been fabulous.  Hope you are having fun too!

Project Linus Quilt Top Donation
I have my Mystery Quilt top (below) all packed up and ready to go to Project Linus on Friday.  I think what they are doing is so great, so I wanted to do something special for them.  I spent a lot of time tonight going through my stash finding fat quarters to donate along with my quilt top.  I hope the Project Linus quilter likes them!

Lattice Illusions
I spent a good amount of time on Friday buying more fabric, cutting little squares, craeating borders, etc for Lattice Illusions.  You can page down if you want to see the details.  Long story short, the project is moving forward, but a little slowly this week.  I am still really enjoying this quilt, which is nice. 

Lattice Illusions was the focus of my first Friday Night Sew In, hosted by Handmade by Heidi. I had a great time on Friday night sewing away. If you have not already participated, I suggest you give it a try next month. I will be back!

That is the news at Fluffy Sheep Quilting. A lot of running around and organizing, but little actual sewing. Let's hope that changes next week and I have something beautiful to show you!  Happy sewing, guys!

Wow - you sure have a lot of projects going, good for you! I can't wait to see what you picked for your Birdie Stitches blocks, I've been having a lot of fun with that slow quilt-and-embroidery-along. And thank you for reminding me about Project Linus!

Sounds like you're really busy, love that project Linus quilt, it's great!

Hexies are very straightforward Cindy, I love 'em, you can do them wherever!

I have never made a cushion so it'll be an experiment!

At some point I will make a quilt for a cot bed.!

Thanks for your comment.

Wow, lots of stuff at once! I love that donation top!

Sometimes it is just impossible to get any sewing done without all that running around and organizing. Love the bag.

I really like the lattice illusions, it looks so cheerful!
