WIP - a NewFO: Kashmir

So. . . I finished the quilt top on my last WIP post (pics Friday). Onward!

Can't get to any more UFO's, as they're stuck in Deep Storage for at least the next 10 days. Can't wait that long to get going with something, especially with the kids all disappearing again this week!

Plus, Monday was my birthday (woohoo!) and the quilt shop has a great birthday incentive. . . So. . .

Here is my August NewFO: a Jinny Beyer quilt kit that positively GLOWS in real life.

Kashmir:


Papers printed and prepped (I left the extra bit untrimmed on the one set so I'd be able to tell the different at a glance), templates made.



Mostly cut out! (but not the fussy-cutting border print, which I just cannot tackle having only a low coffee table to cut on right now)



Even organized already in a cute boot box.  :)


And. . . . .  The next set of Jane fabs is ready to go!


But SADLY (although most importantly), the next semester in my quest for a Masters in History is now officially a WIP. This week's work is:

 and 

This is my last semester of regular courses - I'll be starting my thesis in January. >Whoa<

~*~*~

Go ahead and check out what the others are up to at WIP Wednesday - there's some great eye candy and inspiration out there!

Is it bad that those books actually look really interesting? ;) Happy birthday, and a great present already ready to go! I'm still making my list for my birthday shopping incentive.

What a pretty quilt. Jinny Beyer projects are often too dark for my taste, but I like the looks of this one. It does appear to glow. Thanks for linking up.
