WIP Wednesday 2.25.12

January's Block Lotto involved curves!  We were supposed to make a 9.5" block with a dark color as a base and a light color as the curve.  We could submit nine chances or the Lotto.  Have you checked out the Block Lotto yet?  Just click the button on my right side bar.  It's a lot of fun.  Here's what I did this week:

I also turned in my two charity quilts to our local guild last night.  Here's the X's and O's quilt:

I participated in the Friday Night Sew In this weekend.  LOVE!  can't believe I got this whole quilt top done:
