Wednesday WIP: Dec 11th

Wow, go me... two weeks in a row with some progress made?! Color me impressed! I am hoping to keep it up, but honestly my mom is coming to visit in just 6 days and will be here until Jan 2nd so I am not sure how much sewing time I will have. I have not seen her in almost 2 years though and obviously, quality family time takes precedence. Hopefully, everyone else is finding some time for them selves and the hobbies they love most as well! Here is what I have been up to:

Last week I shared this block where I left out a row of " pixels "  by mistake lol

Now, here is the fixed, and properly square version of this block lol :) I am lovin' it! Also, not perfect points... they used a gridded paper to sew on but I just sewed my squares together.

I also did two new blocks this week, also from my Skill Builder. First is this one, which I like, but is not a favorite of mine.

And then I finished this paper pieced one, and I love paper piecing and this pattern! I am also pretty damn proud of how well the points match up...that is something I have definitely improved on during this Skill Builder series. Not at all perfect, nor do I always match up even lol but I am getting there!

And that is it for this week. I still have 5 more skill builder blocks to go before I am done with the 24 total blocks. Then it is time to quilt sandwich and learn the QAYG method. I am pretty sure I won't be working on FMQ this time around I am just too far behind. So maybe that can be a goal for the coming year, to learn it! lol For now, modern, organic straight lines will do it for me!

I am going to be hopping around today to see how everyone is doing and what goodies everyone is working on! I love getting inspiration from so many amazing bloggers.

Thanks for stopping by and happy hump day!
