WIP Wednesday 1.29.14

End of the month almost already.  It has been a busy busy month!
Here's what happened this week:
I finished quilting this pastel squares quilt for charity for our LQG.

After at least SIXTEEN hours of ripping out poor longarm stitches (from March, 2013), this quilt is ready to be quilted again.  I was so excited that I was learning how to use my template boards from R&L that I didn't look at the back of the quilt and had eyelashes in bright pink everywhere on the back of this quilt.  I've been neglecting this one for too long.  It has now moved to the "to be quilted" section on the list.  Whohoo!  Oh, this is the Spring, 2012 Mystery Quilt from Yahoo Groups.

I finished the quilt top for this baby name commission quilt.

All of the December Block Lotto Blocks have arrived.  I think I am going to use these for my Gypsy Wife QA.
I couldn't resist making Washington Square block for Pat Sloan's 2014 BOM.
I made more Crown of Thorn blocks for the RSC14.
I experimented and did a large block.  This block is 15" or something like that.
