WIP Wednesday 8.14.19

It's crunch time.  School starts next week, 8/21.  I've been trying to finish quilt tops and make backs so that I can have them loaded unto the longarm frame for quilting when I get a free moment when our little "Pudding Pop" is at school.  Here's what happened this week:

I FINISHED my Cafe' Latte (Ugly Fabric Quilt Challenge)!  I started it in 2012.



I quickly put together my December Scrappy Stars blocks together that I won in the December, 2018, Block Lotto.  The back is also made -- Woohoo!



I worked on sewing green squares together this week for the SSSSQ (with Kevin the Quilter.)  All of my blocks (2.5" and 1.5") have been neatly cut with my Accuquilt dies.  Here are the pretty squares all neatly stacked and counted.



All of the 2.5" pieces for the SSSSQ are done through clue #2.  Now to sew the 1.5" pieces for the leader/ender project...


My Fortune Teller blocks are going together.  I need to measure it to see if it's long enough for our son's bed.  He liked the bright colors on this quilt and asked if he could have it.



I made waffle blocks in pinks and blues for the RSC19.



I have officially decided to stop wasting my time on 14.  Linen and Threads - Mystery Sampler SAL Sew-to-go bag project started 1.21.19.  The cross stitch project just isn't the same since I spilled coffee on it, had to wash it, it faded a little, and the cross stitch blocks got way smaller than it was.  It's hard to see and not fun for me anymore...

I currently have 65 on-going projects.
