WIP Wednesday 2.25.15

Here's what happened this week:

I finished block 3 of the Sew Sweet Simplicity BOM.

I finished my Urban Churndash QA quilt today.  You can read more about the quilt along at Piece N Quilt.  What a fun pattern.  I made my blocks smaller for a baby quilt (and it was Accuquilt GO! Baby friendly.)  Here's my finished top:

I inherited some new treasures from my mother-in-law.  The area is all organized and ready to sew.

I got all caught up on my pink blocks this week for the RSC15 Sampler Challenge.

Here are the two pink blocks:

Here are all the four patches for the chain blocks:

I'm caught up on the blue four patches too. Whohoo!!!

RSC 15
I have good and bad news about the 2015 Spring Tea quilt for my local quilt guild.  The idea and quilting was coming along beautifully.

Sadly it's still too cold to use my longarm with the negative temps here in Ohio.  It takes too long and takes a lot of expensive fuel oil to heat the room.  When my longarm can't get warmed up I have tension issues.  When the temps are at least in the 30's it goes back to stitching normal with no adjustments.  It's a machine; it doesn't like the cold.  I did make the back for this quilt and my part is now done.  I am crossing it off my WIP Wednesday list.  It has been passed on to the next guild member to finish where it is nice and warm.

I got some of my Churn & Dash quilt put together.  Three rows to go.

I'm linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced for WIP Wednesday!  See what everybody is doing here.
