W.i.P. Wednesday

Welcome back for W.i.P. Wednesday! Don't miss out on Dots Swap! Go here for details and sign up (through Thursday), and then the swapping will begin!

Completed projects
Finished up 10 half-square triangle blocks for the Scrapbuster Swap, plus the 'thank you' mod tree block. Got all that mailed - yay!

Ongoing projects
My Kaleidoscope quilt along blocks are done, though I had a little 'incident' while trimming them tonight. I started squaring blocks to 12 1/2", and after doing 3 realized that my blocks really needed to be a tad larger to not cut off all the points when I pieced the blocks together. Not sure why, but as I went forward, I squared them to 12 3/4", to keep the integrity of those points. Needless to say, 3 blocks were now useless, so barring a change of heart and making more, my quilt will now be 4 blocks by 5, rather than 5 by 6. Oh well.

The Summer Sampler Series Quilt Along blocks are coming along nicely! I'm really enjoying making these!

Dream Big is done being quilted, but alas, still in not home. Hopefully Thursday.

Afternoon Snack table runner and Cappuccino Bali Pop "Light & Shadow" are still waiting for attention. I'd really like to have both of these done in the next few weeks!

Upcoming projects
* Stash quilt - zig zag quilt
* Quilts for our siblings.

On hold for a while
Block-a-palooza quilt along needs basted and quilted.

So there's my progress for this week! Be sure and head over to Freshly Pieced to see more W.i.P.s!

I LUV your kalid-eee quilt!

"useless" blocks
...they might be really pretty on the back...using one for your label?
...or maybe a pillow sham? or a button or zipped quilt-case?

I love that you are doing your summer sampler in soilds!

The summer sampler series squares look great, I'm still tempted to join in, but a little daunted by what I've missed (and picking the fabrics!)

Your Kaleidoscope quilt along blocks are beautiful! I am also enjoying your all-solids Summer Sampler Series Quilt Along blocks.

Your kaleidoscope and summer sampler blocks both look awesome! That is exactly why I didn't square up my blocks at all, I had the same issues...

Love your Summer Sampler blocks and your kaleidoscope is lovely no matter the size!
