WIP Wednesday 4.26.17

It's been another productive week.  Here's what happened:

I finished Tumbler Rug #2.  It measures 28" x 42".  I love these denim rugs!

My Garden Party grew by a row.  (Pattern by Bonnie Hunter.)

I made three more scrappy challenge blocks for the local quilt guild.

I finished block #18 of 25 of the Pat Sloan Solstice Challenge.

I'm excited about the QA, #100Days100Blocks2017 because it was one I started in 2015.  I made these blocks back in 2015 for a QA with Michele at Crayon Box Quilt Studio for the City Sampler at Your Own Pace QA.   Then that was it.  It had been so long ago that I forgot my color scheme and everything.  I did run across the blocks last week while looking for another old project and cleaning my quilting shelf.  This will be an Instagram QA.  I dug them out and they are ready to go.  #100Days100Blocks2017 will start on May 7.  You can read all the details on our hostess (Angie's) blog, Gnome Angel HERE. 

I'm working on the binding on the Underpants Project.  Don't expect any fast finishes.  I'm soooooooo  sloooooooow when it comes to stitching binding by hand.  But this one needs to be "fancy".
