WIP Wednesday 4.12.17

Another productive week in the books!  Here's what I accomplished:

I had a big finish.  Here's my RSC15 Sawtooth Sampler designed by Angela at SoScrappy.

I finished block 16 of 25 called the Friendship Block of Pat Sloan's Solstice Challenge quilt. 
More buds have bloomed on my Homestead Harvest project that stays in my to-go bag.
Another row grew on  my Garden Party quilt.  This pattern is designed by Bonnie Hunter and can be found in her latest book, Addicted to Scraps.  I have decided to try to make one row a week on this quilt -- and attach it to the quilt.  This week I played with multi-colored scraps for the RSC17.
My H2H quilt has been put together.  I won these blocks in an orphan adoption here.
My Heart Skips a Beat is on the longarm frame.  I thought it would be a great quilt to test out one of the new (to me) pantos that I recently purchased off of the APQS forums.  Expect a Friday finish.

This quilt happily made it to the binding stage!  Look at all those multi-colored fabrics used on the back.  Thanks, RSC17 for the idea!

I took some time to tame a few scraps with my Accuquilt 1.5" and 2.5" strip dies.  I'm storing them in my new Art Boxes that I got online at Walmart for $9.97 each.  There's a little plastic slip that slides in the grooves of each bin that gently clamps the fabric in place.  It doesn't move even when dropped!

Ahhh.  That's much better than that mess on my desk.
