WiP Wednesday #39

I am dragging so seriously badly this morning, thanks to super late night at the movies, seeing a midnight showing of "The Help."   I'm not quite awake enough to tell you much other than that it was absolutely worth how tired I am today!  And I will definitely be seeing it again!!   Let's see how things are going with my project list...


Summer Sampler blocks - I'm holding off on putting this top together just yet, because I'm going to combine these blocks with the ones I receive in the 4x5 Modern Quilt Bee, so this one is done for now.

Still going:
Warm/Cool QAL - I'm halfway through trimming these blocks and ironing them. Here's hoping I can maybe get to the laying out part next week...


Farmer's Wife QAL - I'm 24 blocks into the quilt-along, just another 87 to go!

24 blocks down!

For the Love of Solids swap - I did a lot of sketching over the weekend and digitized several of the sketches I liked.  I'm still deciding which one is the best...

Talk to me, partner

Ryan's guy quilt - I haven't gotten anywhere with this one this week.  In fact, my pile of fabric has a smidgen of dust on top of it at the moment.

Another mystery project - I can't share much about this one just yet, but I promise you will see it down the road!  I did a lot of cutting this week, and hope to do a lot of piecing next week.
