WIP!

Wow. I am so far behind, it's just sad! I am still coming out of vacation mode... housework is not getting done. Sewing is being neglected. I'll get back into the groove but for this week, here's all I've got...

Summer Series: the 12th block, which I did the moment I picked up my machine:


I love how it came out. I decided to go bold and colorful! So, I have all 12 blocks done, but I decided that I want to make the quilt just a little bigger, so I'm going to make a few more, then get the top pieced together.

I did also get the Virginia Star done for the SBS Sampler, but I haven't take pictures yet. It's a motivational problem. My mind is still in Colorado. ;)
Anyway, I will pick things up this week, but for now - don't miss all the great WiPs at Freshly Pieced! (Oh, and don't forget to vote for Lee's fabric - see post below!!) Happy WiP Wednesday!!

Love, love love the bright and fun colors of this block. So sunny! I'm going to pretend that when school starts I'm going to have time to quilt.

This is a stunner!

Of course, we all want to make one now, so look for a lot of clones coming your way.

I have the same prob with the "coming out of it" business. When I read around on the other blogs, I notice that we are not alone.

I finally started cutting ONE square out of a planned new quilt last night, then left it on the ironing board to go and watch a movie with my husband. So progress. . . just not MUCH progress. Sigh.
