WIP Wednesday

This week I am working on something that, due to my own slackness, has become something of an urgent project.  You might be able to tell from the name RATBAGS (Reliable And Talented Babes Attending Group sexStitching) that the real life stitching group I belong to is good fun, and we don't take ourselves too seriously.

We decided to do a regular challenge project, and Anne set the first one - paper piecing using this cute tutorial, at least A4 size, and with at least some free motion quilting.  Well, I've done the paper piecing, but the deadline for the finished item is this Saturday.  So, I need to get my A into G and get quilting!


Also, I am liking my scrappy trip along quilt (aka La Piñata) more and more, so I am keen to get it basted and quilted asap.  Lots more pictures here.


What are you working on this week?

Linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced:
