WIP Wednesday

I have had a bit of a change of plans with my projects.  I found out this week that my sister-in-law (who we have for Christmas this year) would like a queen size quilt.  At first I was worried because she asked for lots of blues, but then I looked in my closet and realized I have a TON of blue fabrics in my stash.

I have been wanting to try to make a wonky cross quilt after seeing this quilt and this quilt.  I like this block because on it's own, it's not something that I would normally make, but I love the way a bunch of them look together.

I finished a stack of blocks last night.  Only about a hundred more to go :)

I also finished another Jane market bag earlier this week.  My daughter picked the fabrics for this one.

My goals for this week . . .
  • get my Groove quilt basted and start quilting
  • make some more wonky cross blocks.  Christmas is still a while away, but I know the next few months are going to be busy so I don't want to run out of time.

  2. I love the wonky crosses - that design has always appealed to me too though I've never made one. I like the bag as well, it's lovely.

  3. What a fun quilt it will be. I hope you'll show us when it's finished. And I love the bag. Where did you get the pattern? How large is it?
