WiP Wednesday: Up To No Good

In spite of not feeling well and getting ready for yet another surgery next week I accomplished quite a bit this week. I finished up a quilt, completed an order from my shop, and made good progress on my next project. I'm linking up with Freshly Pieced.

First Work-in-Progress...
My SIL teaches 3rd grade in Texas and wanted a quilt for her class room that she could hang on the wall. She saw a book quilt and thought that would be fun. I decided to take it to the next level. I found Melissa's Read With Me quilt tutorial and changed the appliqued words. For those of you who don't recognize the quote it's from Harry Potter and just PERFECT for my sister-in-law's personality. The rows of books are all finished and once I finish sewing around all these letters then there will be a row of books between each row of words. The top should be done pretty quickly.

I also got an order for a Sleepy Fox Hat from my Etsy shop. I love this hat!! It's fun to make and so cute on!

See! My hubby is totally rocking it! The order was for a large adult size and he was so sweet to let me use his head as a guide and take his picture. If I thought he'd wear it I would actually make him one. He's more conservative than this though. ;)
I also have a quilt finish...
I finished up my T-shirt quilt. It was crazy fast and all told about 13.5 hours of work all completed in under a week. Check out the full finish post here.
 That's me for the week! Thanks for stopping by! I hope to make a bunch more progress on my book quilt but I'm pretty sore so we'll see what happens.
