WIP Wednesday 8.16.17

The countdown to school is totally ON.  Next week at this time the kid will be at school.  I will be doing a 5K walk and then off to my longarm.  A new customer quilt is coming today.  She said it is a diamonds pattern...  I think it's a big star.  I'll comment more on that later.

Here's what happened this week:

Surprise.  I couldn't help myself anymore.  I started ANOTHER new project.  I needed a project for my school bag.  I've been getting Kim Diehl books from the library and fell in love with this project:

 
The quilt is called Short and Sweet.  It will be close to 33.5" square.
 
 
It's from this book.  I'll have the quilt top finished enough to return it to the library in time!  I won't have all the little applique pieces done, but will be able to do it with the above pic. 

 
This is my slow stitching project in the to-go bag that I keep in my truck:
 
 
Today I made the 4" (3.5" finished) Marvelous Mini Monday block for the mystery quilt at Temecula Quilt Company.   This is the little log cabin block:
 
I finished the last block that I needed to complete the quilt top for my Welcome Home Sampler.  This quit is in the book, Welcome Home ~~Surround Yourself With Country Warmth, by Cheryl Wall.
 
I made four-patch blocks and added another row to my Go-FOUR-It quilt:
 

 
 
I played with neutrals for the RSC17 and made more triangles for the on-point setting it the above.
 
 
I entered this photo of my chickens for the Pets on Quilts contest at LilyPad Quilting
 
 
I finished a Block Lotto project which was also my August OMG goal and APQS UFO Challenge.  I won these blocks in the Block Lotto on 12.31.2014.  The Block Lotto (which Sophie who blogs at Sophie Junction) so beautifully runs.  This quilt measures 61.5" square.

 Angie, who blogs at GnomeAngel is leading us in a sew along.  I was tempted with a sew along with Gypsy Wife when I bought the book and life got in the way.  Now that my 100 blocks for the City Sampler is done (also an Instagram quilt along led by Angie), I am going to let myself start another.  Each Thursday a block is assigned.   Here are my first two blocks (Colour Wheel and Pershing):
 
Linking up with Susan at Quilt Fabrication for Midweek Makers.  The linky party is here.
 
Linking up with Lorna at Sew Fresh Quilts for Let's Bee Social.  The linky party is here.
