WIP are like rabbits. Once you have two they multiply like crazy! That's okay though, because I think bunnies are cute so the more the merrier. Currently I am participating in three QAL's and to my surprise have managed to stay pretty caught up on all three. First up is the Pat Sloan Mystery BOM My Secret Garden and it has been going on since January. Above, is the latest block released earlier this month. I try my hardest to piece the 16" blocks with in a day or two of their release so that I do not fall behind.
Next up, is Yvonne at Quilting Jetgirl's Snowflake Shimmer QAL. Last week she released the cutting instructions (so it's not too late, join in!) and again, I knew I needed to get cracking. I posted a picture last week of my hard work, but realized it was kind of hard to see them while they were still in their storage bin. So I pulled them out this evening to get a better picture. I'm so in love with the metallic shimmer on these fabrics.
And lastly, we have Cheryl at Meadow Mist Designs Meadow Mystery QAL. Last Thursday, she posted the cutting instructions and I couldn't wait to cut into my fabrics. However, I'm kind of glad I put it off until this evening. Last night was our monthly guild meeting and I was contacted to see if I could discuss fabric selection as a presentation, since the speaker had to cancel at the last second. So I through together some impromptu helpful hints and did what I try to do best...winged it.
For a last minute thing, I think it went pretty well. Six ladies brought their fabrics for everyone to see. Two even had two separate fabric pulls and decided they may make two quilts. I said go for it! That's what I would do, but hey I'm kinda crazy like that. I'm so excited to see what the others come up with.
For now my fabrics are cut and safely labeled in zip lock bags until next month.
And one last thing I almost forgot about, until Lara at Buzzin Bumble reminded me that this Sunday kicks off the 2016 Pets on Quilts over at Lily Pad Quiltng!!!
If you are a pet lover and your pet loves quilts, it's time to show them off. The idea is to write up a post about your quilt loving animal; dog, cat, horse, guinea pig, it doesn't matter, just link up. I do believe there are different categories. At the end of the link up, you can vote for your favorite pet in each category. And yes there are prizes. So hop over to Lily Pad Quilting for more details and I hope to read about your furry, scaly, feathered or maybe even hairless quilt lover. I'm pretty sure spouses and WIP (remember they are like rabbits) do not count.
