WIPs With Friends

I worked like a fiend over the weekend and some this week to 
get some of those stars and squares I was working on put together.  
I didn't take any photos of the assembled rows yet, 
but I do have some of my "helpers" that I can share. 
 Each row took me an hour or so to put together.  There is a CRAP TON of matching. 
 I'll get some photos tonight and share tomorrow.

Here is Mr Finny inspecting my fabric choices.  
You can also see all the squares for the pattern are sewn 
(but not yet pressed in this picture).  



It actually took me several hours to press all those seams open!


All that "helping" was exhausting!  
Of course he chose the crap valley to sleep in!  See that aqua box?  All 72 star blocks are in that.  


Oh and don't think Cole wasn't in on the "helping".  He took over inspector Autumn's spot.  
Oh Finny, you are so dramatic!


I did get my September bee blocks made too .  Yes, that's right, I said September!  
Trying to get ahead of the game here.


And they were so cute I made one for me too! 
 I am thinking that I will try to make an extra block each time and then make them into a sampler.  We will see how that goes though.  


I am linking up with Sew Fresh Quilts.

Now it's your turn to share what YOU are working on.

Use the Linky tool to link up or the #WIPSwithfriends on IG.

Can't wait to see what everyone else is working on.

I love the pineapple blocks! I can see why you made one for yourself! Its always nice to have little four legged helpers by your side!

The helpers are so cute! And so are those pineapple blocks. I like how one is patchwork and the other is a solid piece. A sampler quilt sounds like a great idea!

The pineapple blocks are really nice. What a good idea to make an extra of your bee blocks. Now why didn't I think of that. I belong to 3 bees. I could have finished a quilt already.

Oh my, I love your 'helpers.' They look so darn cute, and YES that is exhausting work. Keeping you on task, making sure you are doing everything correctly - lots of stress there. Love the pineapple blocks. ~smile~ Roseanne
