Wednesday Wait Loss 86

Welcome to Wednesday Wait Loss, where we share photos of quilty projects we're working on. It's my hope that here at WWL, you'll get the encouragement you need to stop waiting and to finish your quilt projects!

First let me tell you what I've been up to

Last week I finished two blocks for the Queens of my online bee, Bee Inspired. I’m not caught up yet, but I’m at least out of the dog house a bit. <grin> You can read all about my progress here.

I also made some progress on this month’s Island Batik challenge, which is to make a quilt with stars. My journey to finishing this quilt has not been easy but I can tell you that at least I’ve sewn all the blocks! You can read all about it here.

Just to tease you, here’s a sneak peek at one of my blocks. <grin>

That's it for me! What have you been doing this past week?

Let's see who made this week's feature

Last week was a special Wednesday Wait Loss for School quilts. There were lots of quilts to feature!

First up is Jen @ De Jon Dream House, who shared the quilts she’s made for various teachers and administrators at her son’s school. One quilt really stood out for me, and that was a book quilt Jen made for the school librarian who was retiring.

Jen also shared a quilt for Mrs. Knoch, Mrs. Graves, a Little Learners quilt, and a Milestone quilt for a teacher’s baby. If you missed them at last week’s Wednesday Wait Loss, please visit her blog to see them!

Next up is Lisa Marie, who shared a Schoolhouse block and a quilt she made for a reading challenge. If you can, visit Lisa Marie on Flickr and leave her a comment. (If you can’t, leave her some encouragement here.)

Finally, I want to feature Susie Walden, who shared a Halloween Party quilt. As Susie explained in last week’s comments, the Halloween Party was always the first school party of the year, so it marked a special time for her. Susie is a retired teacher, so show her your appreciation in the comments.

Congratulations everyone! ! Thanks for sharing your quilts with us and making my School Quilt link up so special. Here's an I Was Featured badge for your blogs.

So Who Won the Giveaway and When Can I Enter Again?

If you linked up a quilt project to last week’s Wait Loss Wednesday, you got one chance to win an Island Batik Stash Builder roll (a roll of several 2-1/2" x WOF batik strips). If you linked up a school quilt, you got two chances to win. After numbering all the chances, I let pick the winner.

Congratulations Jen! Email me your address and I’ll send your Stash Builder batik strips to you!
