W.i.P. Wednesday

Time for a W.i.P. Wednesday report!

Completed projects
I had a fun finish this week - my Summer Sampler.
{complete post with pics here}

Ongoing projects
Charm squares for the Color Wheel Charm Swap were sent off!

Cappuccino Bali Pop Quilt - still piecing the bali pop strips.

4x5 modern Quilt Bee blocks - in progress! This 'project with a deadline' has been giving me some anxiety - the hardest part is deciding on a block! Seeing what's going up in the flickr group can be very intimidating! But, thankfully, I decided on a block last weekend and started sewing! Five blocks are done {love them!} - hope to have the sixth done yet this week and all in the mail this weekend. The block I finally settled on was an adaptation of "Planetarium" from Elizabeth Hartman's book, The Practical Guide to Patchwork. This is a great book, and I am glad for the inspiration I found in it for the 4x5. (You'll also find plenty of inspiration on Elizabeth's blog, Oh, Fransson!

I went over and read about your Summer Sampler quilt, and I, too, love the blocks "floating" on the white background. It's such a good way to highlight those fun summery citrusy colors!

Sorry to be so slow on the WIP comments--one of those weeks!
