WIP Wednesday

Are you keeping up with your Blocks of the Month?  The only one I am doing well with is the 2012 Designer Mystery Block of the Month from Fat Quarter Shop.  We're up to Block 8.  This month's block was designed by Bonnie Olaveson and Camille Roskelley, who also designed the fabrics for this year's quilt.

Someone will point out to me that the center of my block is reversed, but I doubt it will be noticeable in the finished quilt.

I've finally completed all the blocks for my version of the Quiltmaker's Scrap Squad quilt.  The March/April issue of the magazine should be on newsstands soon, so you can see the original quilt that is our inspiration.  Or go to the Quiltmaker blog, Quilty Pleasures.  We're making scrappy versions of Monique Dillard's Majestic Garden.  Mine uses scraps from an old Moda University project, "Chocolat."

I don't dare start another project until this one is complete.  My deadline is February 22!

Linking up to WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.

Is your January UFO complete?  Send me an email with a photo and description of your project to AuntMarti [at] 52Quilts [dot] com by tomorrow so you can be in the parade!

  1. Up to date with BOM's you are joking aren't you? That scrappy quilt just makes my mind boggle!

  2. Glad to hear the scrap squad inspired you to make a beautiful quilt, I was on the very first scrap squad and guess what they are looking for new might not be too late to apply.

    Happy Sewing

  3. Beautiful colors I love how they all blend together!

  4. I love the scrap squad quilt. It must be a trick of the eye but it almost looks like there's wavy lines coming down it. Wonderful! :o)

  5. Love your scrap quilt, that's an awful lot of HSTs! Great work!

  6. That scrappy Chocolat quilt is looking fantastic - so many secondary patterns when you see it all like that. Gotta love having a design wall!

  7. Looks like you are doing good in 2013 so far! I love your block... and your scrappy quilt is beautiful.
