WIP Wednesday 10/26/11

Here's the Block Swap Adventure block that I sent to Janet in Carcross, Yukon Territory, Canada.  She likes scrappy blocks alternating light and dark colors.

I didn't really like the way the original block came out because it only measured 12".  It needs to be 12.5".  I added the border.  I didn't think that was fair to send  her this block because of the border, so I sent this block as the bonus block and then sent her a "real" 12.5" block made from the scraps in my Diamond Chains QA quilt.

This is Block #10 from the October Uber-fest.  The tute is at

Block were mailed on Thursday, 10/13/11.  Hopefully Janet has already received them and this post won't spoil the surprise.

New Projects:  1 - Two stockings for Stockings for Kids Campaign at Purple Panda Quilts Stockings for kids
Help a kid that needs a stocking and link up and you could win a cool prize.  Here's where I am on that...all cut out and ready to sew:

I made one block for the October Block Lotto so far.  I have had guesses for bear, koala, and dog... it's an owl...

 As for the Drunkard's Path QA I finished three more sub blocks so that I could make one block.  Since I'm new to curves, it's taking a while, but I am happy with my progress and learning "curves".

I didn't work any on my Diamond Chains QA this week.  I only have 1/3 of it to quilt and should have two good quilting days next week where I can spread it out on the kitchen table and finish--hopefully.  Fingers crossed that will be my main  post for WIP Wednesday next week.

I also completed my We Can Do It Skill Builder Sampler block this week which featured paper peicing:
Here's my Crazy Quilt block for the same quiltalong.  I really like the little owl!
