W.I.P. Wednesday - Work in Progress

There's a little bit of "frozen rain" falling around here; and it's still so dark I think I forgot to go to bed, but since I've been up since 5:30, I thought I'd share what I've been working on this week.  I'm hooking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced for Work-in-Progress Wednesday.

I got my "Stacked" quilt finished yesterday; handed it off to Guy about noon; and he had it quilted by 3:00.  It still needs to be trimmed; I found a pretty pastel multi-batik in my stash, so that's going to be the binding.
I love the random leaf pattern he used in the quilting:

Here's an idea of what the whole quilt looks like....yes, I was too lazy to put it up on the wall:

I got sucked into the current "Scrappy Trip Around the World" block mania.  So now I guess I've got another UFO started:

I'm trying to keep a black square of some print or other going through the middle of each block....we'll see how this works out.  I must admit, it's easy to get hooked.  This is the tub of fabrics I'm working from.....all 2 1/2-inch strips:

I started working on the "Sew Red for Women" blocks again.  I've made 7 of the 11 that have been published so far.  The January block (number 12) got postponed for a while.....I took it as a sign that I have time to get the other 4 done so I will be caught up.  I think these will look just right for a February Valentine's quilt, don't you?

And, of course, "Easy Street" keeps calling me.  Can you believe that the makings for 23 15-inch blocks all fit in this bin:

OK, time for juice and a piece of toast.  I'm off to play piano accompaniment for Stonewall High School's production of "Side by Side by Sondheim"....three more morning rehearsals and performances Friday and's been a busy week.  Stay safe out there,

I love the Stacked quilt. I think I need to try that one out.
