WIP Wednesday and Other Stuff

I am one of the charity chair people for the A2MQG.  
We are participating in the MCG charity project and making a couple of quilts. 
 I am on the "Let's make blocks" team.  
Debbie Grifka generously provided a copy of one of her Think Positive quilt patterns and 
we are all making blocks from the prescribed colors that were chosen by the national guild.  
I got the aqua and lime green ones.  
Here is my progress.

We can't add the sides/top/bottom until we get them all laid out so we can see where they need to be but I LOVE them!!




Another project that I am in the middle of is this one.  I just used pearle cotton to do a blanket stitch around the applique.  I even hand appliqued the scallopped edges down!  I NEVER do that!  One more week and it will be a gift!  So only a sneak peek for now.


The last thing I bought were some needle minders as gifts (maybe)   = )

I think you know who the one is for, but not sure if I am keeping the other or gifting it.  
Time will tell.  
If you want your own or want to see what other goodies are available check out 


Fatty McFatty says it is getting cold here in Michigan so you should totally curl up and quilt! 
 (or nap as the case must be)



I will be linking up to Lee's WIP Wednesday.
