WIP Wednesday 2.19.14

A holiday... another snow day...  Didn't get everything done this week, but I did get quite a bit done.

Chalk another one off the list.  I completed my Yahoo Groups 2012 Spring Mystery quilt!



For RSC14 I made 12 scrappy string strips that are 2.5" x about 43"!



I started working on my Finding Nemo Scrappy Trip quilt again.  I have three rows done and now I can add these six blocks to it this week.



I finished my Classic Meets Modern block for February -- LOVE it!
