WIPs Moving Along...

Most of my stitching this week has been on the Community Quilt.  I am really happy with how this is moving along.  I finished cutting my fabric and have started making blocks.  One block is made of six strips.  I have made all of the strips I need, so I am now stitching them together into sets of three, that are then put together in mirror image into a block. 

There is a way to go yet, but I am completely happy plugging along.  There are several ways to align these blocks, each generating its own unique pattern.  I have not decided what it will look like yet, but I am enjoying day dreaming of my options. 



Two more packages have arrived for the Japanese Fabric Swap!  I also gained a bit of courage and cut my own fabric (on the right in this photo).  Not to worry, swap partners, I did put a new blade on first!


As usual on a Wednesday, I am linking up with Freshly Pieced WIP Wednesday, and Someday Crafts Whatever Goes Wednesday

I love that block layout you have there, it works really well. Still haven't cut my charms yet - pesky children requiring time and attention! But now I have my mini done, I'll be hopping to it tomorrow evening!
