WIP Wednesday 2.5.14

Busy, busy, busy as ever!
I finished this baby name quilt.  I'm very proud of it.  It just turned out so professional.

I finished longarming my 2012 Yahoo Groups Spring Mystery and the 1" Scrappy Squares charity quilt for our LQG.

I finished the February block for the 2014 Quilt Doodle Designs BOM.

I got more blue blocks done for the January "blue" RSC14.

I started working on the pink blocks for the RSC14.

I finally finished ripping all the longarm eyelashes on this 2012 Yahoo Groups Spring Mystery quilt.  It's my goal to finish this quilt for the A Lovely Year of Finishes challenge for February.

I made nine Bead on a String blocks for the February Block Lotto.

I decided to use my red/white orphan and dud blocks for the Gypsy Wife QA.  I will be substituting some of the blocks for the ones I have already made depending on what size is used that month.  Here's my bag of fabrics and some red/white scraps I will be using.  I may add some aqua, black and a streak of yellow -- maybe...

Can you believe that I totally missed the post about the Mod Mod QA on the Block Lotto site?  This will be my NewFO for February.  It will be another on-going project as blocks are released each month.  At least I'm not too far behind. 

I made these blocks for the Mod Mod QA on the Block Lotto site.  I made them the wrong size...  I guess I'll make all the blocks smaller and add some borders to make it my own.  These are my colors for this quilt.  I'm not sure how many bead blocks I need for the Mod Mod QA yet.

Mod-Mod QAL on the Block Lotto2014 NewFO Challenge
I longarmed two small alphabet panels for our LQG.  They still need to be trimmed.  I haven't selected the binding for them yet either.  Here's the charity quilt on the longarm now:

Love beads on a string! It's going to be so striking. You are right to be proud of your baby name quilt too:-)

The Gypsy Wife quilt has been calling my name, too. I love your red and white idea. FYI, I DID include the chart with the number of bead blocks you'll need for the Mod-mod- QAL in the February announcement post on the Block Lotto. I'll have more details mid-month, but if you want to start making beads, you certainly could.
