Pancakes Twice

I missed Pancake Tuesday!  You know, it came and went and when I started wondering what all the  fuss about pancake recipes was all about it had come and gone!
Can't believe we're preparing for Easter already.
So we had pancakes for dinner last night.

These circles of fabric and wadding so remind me of pancakes!

Mr Honey Pie's niece and her hubby are expecting their first baby in May.
I'm making this super efficient cathedral window cot quilt for their baby.
It's a quilt as you go, no binding quilt!
You can find the instructions here.
I've added two more rows to make it larger.
As you may have guessed, they're expecting a girl.

I've managed to get The In The Pink Quilt Top  I've been working on off the floor.
Yes, off the floor!  It's huge and the floor had to be my design wall.
It is now numbered and pinned and some of the squares have been stitched. 
But now the cathedral window cot quilt is my top priority.
I've decided that my hexagon scrappy quilt is never going to progress if I don't double up on my fabric selection. (Hey I might even triple up or quadruple it.)  So I've taken that up again at night.  Hopefully this way progress will not only be quicker but I'll get to use up more of my scraps.
There's been no progress on my French General quilt top or the Dragonfly Japanese Fabric one.

It's been a long while since I've linked to WIP  Wednesday.
Why don't you drop by and visit Lee at Freshly Pieced?


  1. Love the fabrics for your cathedral window quilt, what a great idea!

  2. I think your 'pancake' play mat is going to be great:)

  3. Thank you for sharing that quilt pattern! I'm going to make this next for my next baby quilt. Adorable!

  4. Looking forward to seeing how it when it's finished, it will be lovely :)
