Welcome to Wednesday Wait Loss. Please share what you’ve been working on!
First let me tell you what I've been up to
On Saturday I shared the block I made for the Quilt Con Charity Quilt challenge. With my Bee Inspired beemates, I’m making a modern charity quilt that will hang at Quilt Con!

On Monday I published this week’s schedule for the Island Batik Beat the Heat Blog Hop which is ending this week. There are awesome giveaways and gorgeous batiks so don’t miss out! You might win this week’s precut batik collection which is from Steam Engine, or one of the other giveaways. Be sure to visit each participant’s blog to enter because most giveaways are open until the end of the hop!
Yesterday I published my version of Block 13 in the Sew Let’s QAL. It’s thimbles! Don’t miss your chance to download this free quilt block pattern. Click the link to learn more.
On Tuesday I also published a project using the two blocks I’d made from Sew Let’s QAL Segment 3. It’s a handy zippered sewing caddy! Click here to learn how you can make one for yourself.
Well that was my week!
Now let's see who made this week's feature
As usual, several quilt projects caught my eye.
First, I’d like to throw out some encouragement to my good friend Alice, who shared Dance which only lacks a binding to be finished, and Lady of the Great Lakes (an anniversary quilt) that she has been working on for years.
One of the reasons I started Wednesday Wait Loss was to provide encouragement to my fellow quilters to finish languishing works in progress. So let’s leave a comment here for Alice (she doesn’t have a blog) to encourage her to keep on working on these awesome quilts!
This week there was a lot of inspirational quilting up for display. First up is Nancy @ Grace and Peace Quilting who shared this quilt, made by her customer Bonnie. Nancy chose a modern design for this very modern quilt. To see the whole quilt, visit Nancy’s blog!
This quilt was made by her customer Patty, and since it features trucks, Nancy chose a tire track-like design. To see the whole quilt, click here and visit Nancy’s blog.
I learn a lot by looking at the quilting on quilts, such as how to make good choices! Do you do that too? <grin>
Kat @ Scrapbox Quilts shared her progress on her Dahlia panel. Isn’t it lovely? Such a great source of quilting ideas! Let’s encourage Kat to finish this wonderful quilt by visiting her blog.
Now onto quilts that are inspiring for other reasons. Andrea @ Mouse in My Pocket shared her Halloween crazy quilt in progress. This is such a clever way to use a panel! Love it.
Finally, Vasudha @ Storied Quilts shared her August Beat the Heat Blog Hop quilt. Isn’t it gorgeous?
Congratulations ladies! Here's an I Was Featured badge for your blogs or to simply print out and wear with pride! Thank you for supporting my blog!

Our Next Giveaway!
Our next giveaway is September, so gather up your quilts! Since September is the month most kids return to school, let’s focus on learning. What I’ll be looking for is a quilted project that features some kind of technique that’s new to you, much like my Island Batik June challenge was to me. So for two chances you’ll need to link up your project and leave something in the comments or on your blog post that explains what the technique was and what you learned from trying it.
So dig through your quilts and prepare your stories. Or if you’re so inclined, select something new and try it! We’d love to share in your quilting journey.
