WiP Wednesday {15} and a winner.

First things first today.  I have a winner to announce for the Sew Fresh Fabrics giveawayDrum roll please.  And the winner is...
...#2. (Seriously, does that ever happen?!?!) Kristie from OCD:obsessive crafting disorder!  Congrats!  If you haven't already, go check out her blog.  She rocks!

Thanks again to Peg and Becca for sponsoring this great giveaway!  
I also want to say WELCOME to all of you new followers who found your way to Canoe Ridge Creations from the GenX Follower Friday Feature.  Sit back, take a look around, and feel free to make yourself at home.  I really hope you enjoy what you see!
And now back to the regularly scheduled programming....WiP Wednesday!
WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced
Are you all familiar with the Cherry House quilt along that is popping up all over blog land?  I instantly fell in love with this quilt.  Something about the Kona Solids and the simple, modern design.  Perfection.  The only thing holding me back from jumping in on all the fun is the finished quilt size.  Following her directions, it only measures 36" x 36".  Seeing as I don't have kids (so no need for baby quilts and/or doll quilts) and I don't really need anymore small wall quilts, it just isn't for me.  So I decided to do a little design remix of my own using some of the FQs I received from the GenX Kona Your World Swap.  Let me just tell you, I. Am. Loving. This. Quilt.  As of now, the quilt top is almost complete (you can see a bit here) and I can't wait to quilt this one.  Hopefully soon!
Top Secret Quilt
This quilty project took up quite the chunk of time this weekend, and probably will take up more in the weeks to come.  While I really would like to share it will you all, it has to remain classified for the time being.  But, I promise it will be worth the wait.  
Have you noticed?  The other night, I decided a little nip/tuck of sorts was in order for the Canoe Ridge Creations blog.  That counts as a finish right?  It's blogging/quilting related, so I will take it!  Thanks for all the kind comments so far!
In love with this quilt.  Enough said.
Slowly, but surely I am making progress on this one.  I am about half way through cutting my fabric out (which I am really hoping is the toughest part of this quilt) and I am itching to get started piecing it.

MMM Swap
No Progress.

...And, that's a wrap!

As far as the rest of my list goes, I have decided to drop it for the time being.  I haven't touched any of it in so long that they hardly count as works-in-progress anymore.  They are slowly creeping their way to UFO land (if they haven't already arrived there).  So, new blog look and new WiP list.  Can you all live with that?

  1. haha! I love that it was number 2 that one! Good to know it truely is random!

    Cool fabrics for your quilt alongs, can't wait to see more!

  2. Yes, the cutting is the most tedious part! I started piecing my Single Girl last night, and it's actually a lot of fun. Way more fun than the cutting!! I've been thinking about the solids quilt along too, but was put off by the size. I can't wait to see what you do with it, maybe after I get caught up on all my swaps I'll give it a go. And I'm intrigued about your top secret quilt, can't wait to see what it turns into it...

  3. I love the look of those solid strips! And your single girl quilt fabrics look great! I'm excited to see how your Single Girl Quilt comes out! So much effort, but it's worth it for those adorable quilts!

  4. I'm loving the little sneaks of your Kona fabric, and I'm glad that you love my little quilt along quilt. Though the quilt along quilt is small in size, I will be offering it as a full size quilt soon.

    Can't wait to see when it's finished :-)

  5. Thanks again for the awesome giveaway Megan!! Looking forward to seeing more of your film strip :-)

  6. Ooohhh that solids quilt looks just delicious! Can't wait to see more of it, and love love loving the looks of that single girl quilt! I am still super jealous of your Kate Jump Rope find, this is the most perfect project for it! Great WIPs! ps. Love the new blog facelift, looks great!!

  7. Lots of pretty stuff here, as always! I am super excited to see your Single Girl quilt, I just love seeing all of these come together. Thanks for linking up, have a great week! : )
