Wednesday Wait Loss 83

Welcome to Wednesday Wait Loss! Please share photos of quilty projects you're working on and 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 was featured on QuilterChic! Did you miss my cute Halloween mini quilt? You can still download the free pattern. Click here to read my post.

I decided to give this little mini to my daughter, to decorate her college apartment. To help display it, I bought a frame. She came home this weekend and I surprised her with it.

I also finished the quilt I was making for my friend Alice, just in time for our store challenge on Friday. Woot!

I made another one of these shadow quilts back in 2016 and even created my own Halloween version I call Dark Shadows.

Here are the quilt details:

Next up is Turid @ Sen Syende Himmel, who linked up this adorable Cherry Zoo mini-quilt. I love these colors! Visit Turid's blog to learn more.

Our Next Special Link Up is Coming!

Our next special link up is September 19th, and we're celebrating Back to School quilts. I'll let you define what "Back to School" means to you, but I'm thinking apples, books, numbers, letters, graduation quilts, chalk boards, and so on. While you're gathering quilts, gather up some stories of school experiences that link your quilts to the Back to School theme.

Time to link up your works in progress and recent quilty finishes!

Here are some quick reminders about the linky party:

  • 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.

  • If you link a photo from Facebook, please mention @InquiringQuilter and my Wednesday Wait Loss.
