WIP Wednesday -- Sort Of

"Sort of" means I didn't make much progress on this week's Work-in-Progress!

I need to make 72 blocks to make this quilt the size I want, and so far I have four complete.  I do have most of the 432 Half-Square Triangles sewn.

On a happier note, I was selected to play along with this year's Quiltmaker Magazine's "Scrap Squad!"

The QM Scrap Squad is a select group of seven QM readers.  They take one pattern from each regular issue of Quiltmaker and create their own scrappy versions to inspire you.  The quilts are then featured on the "Quilty Pleasures" blog.

The 2013 Quiltmaker's Scrap Squad includes:

Gina, of Gina Quilts and Knits; Becky, of Becky's Quilt Obsession; Nicole, of Colie's Quilting;  Anne, from QuiltWoman; Christa, of Second Story Quilting; Colette, of My Quilt Place; Carol-no-blog; and me!

The squad has its own Facebook group where we can exchange idea about the scrappy quilts we'll make this year.  My first contribution is due February 22 -- so I'd better get cracking!

  1. Wow, you're making a big quilt. I used the HSTs as leaders enders after I made about half of them. I couldn't stand to make any more at the time. I love your "scrappiness".

  2. Aunt Marti,
    I am so proud of you...and I love your work! Thank you so much for helping me make my first quilt!

  3. What a cute block!! Thank you for joining my show and tell today!

  4. That's some tedious work! But it's so worth it because the block is very beautiful! What will the finished size be?

  5. Great block and how neat that your are taking part in the QM Scrap Squad, those are always neat to see!


Thanks for taking your time to comment. If I don't answer in an email, it's because you're a no-reply commenter and I can't find you!
