Time for Wednesday Wait Loss! I hope you’ve all been busy working on projects to link up because we’ve got a giveaway! More on that in a moment. First, let me show you what I’ve been working on.
Sorry; I can only show you a little teaser, so let me explain. I’m currently making two of the cutest little stuffed animals for the Island Batik booth at Quilt Market! I’m making them in batiks of course, and they are so stinkin’ cute that I wish I could show them off. I will, don’t worry—but not until Market of course.
The patterns by the way, are courtesy of the Funky Friends Factory. I’m making Diggles the Dragon and Puppy Dog Pete. These photos are from their patterns. To see more, please visit their website. Warning: you won’t be able to leave without downloading a pattern. <wink>
Time for our weekly feature!
There were some really cute link ups last week, but I’d like to feature Yanicka @ Finding Myself as an Artist. Yanika is doing a Flower Block Quilt Along--her own design--and she linked up the first block to Wednesday Wait Loss. It is so gorgeous! This quilt is going to be a show stopper! The pattern is free on Craftsy, so there are no excuses. Visit her blog and quilt along!
Congratulations Yanicka! Grab an “I Was Featured” button for your blog.

Time to link up your WIPs and recent finishes! The linky is now open until Sunday, July 16th at midnight EST. Voting will start on Monday and remain open until Tuesday at noon EST. If you need help linking up, click here for detailed steps. If you run into difficulties, just email me your link.
UPDATE: I just discovered that you can link up a photo from Facebook, provided that photo is shared with everyone and not just your friends. Post the photo and make it Public by choosing that Share option. Please mention Wednesday Wait Loss in your post and provide a link to my website if you can. After posting, click the photo and copy the link to it, then paste that into the Link box in the link up. Isn't that cool?
Here are some quick reminders:
- This linky is all about encouragement, so please visit a few of the links and leave a comment.
- If you’re uploading a photo from your phone/computer, leave a comment below that explains your project. And for the rest of us, please reply to a few of these comments leaving words of encouragement for a quick finish.
- Please link back to my post somewhere in your blog post or use @inquiringquilter and #wedwaitloss to tag me in your Instagram/Flickr post.
Beginning Sunday at midnight, you can begin voting for up to six projects. Here, votes are hugs you’re sending to encourage the recipient. So don’t forget to come back Monday through Tuesday noon to send those hugs!
To thank you for linking up, I'm having a giveaway! The lucky winner will receive four fat quarters from the Isadora collection by Windham Fabrics. You'll get one chance for every WIP or finished quilt you link up this week and next week (for a maximum of three chances per week). I'll announce a winner on July 26th.
