WIP Wednesday: Playing Catch Up

After taking the entire month of September off, I'm seriously behind with swap blocks, Jelly Roll Party Samples, and pretty much everything else!

So today I sewed like the wind, and I have my Front Range Modern Quilt Guild swap blocks finished:

Angela asked for Erica Jackman's "Simply Style Stacked Squares Quilt" blocks in warm colors. Orange is warm, right?

Both Emily and Peggy asked for wonky log cabin blocks. Wonky is not my best thing, but I think they turned out OK.

And the next-to-last block for the 2013 Quiltmaker Magazine Scrap Squad swap:

Carol asked for "anything that reminds you of the beach." I actually bought this fabric when I was on vacation at the beach last month. The block is "Storm at Sea," in honor of My Little Sailor missing not one, but two typhoons while he was home on leave (whew!).

And the flimsy for the November Jelly Roll Party sample:

The pattern is Parallel Universe from Cozy Quilts. The fabric is from Sweetwater, their new collection, "Elementary."

I have one more Jelly Roll Party sample to make, then I'll be more or less caught up. With the quilting that is -- the knitting and the housework? Not so much!

  1. I'm with you on the housework. Last Wednesday I got an attack of cleaning fever and whizzed around cleaning and tidying and this week you wouldn't know I had so I left it and got on with my quilting!

  2. Woooohoooo! I love my's perfect!
