WIP Wednesday 4.24.13

Here's what happened this week:

I got moving on this quilt.  I submitted it to my local quilt guild as my round robin quilt.  Each month someone from my guild will make two blocks for my quilt.  I provided all fabric and instructions.  I should get 20 blocks back at the LQG Christmas party.



I started a NEW project!  I can't wait any longer to do a scrappy trip quilt.  I cut tons and tons of my blues and greens from my string bin into 2.5" pieces.  Each block will have a strip of orange going through the center.  I call it my Finding Nemo scrappy trip.  In return I received a scrappy string-pieced block pattern to complete.



I completed three bird blocks for The Block Lotto.



I finished my Chasing Chevrons QA quilt!


I threw this little bear quilt panel on the frame.  It's almost finished!



I donated these two quilts to charity via my local quilt guild:
