WIP Wednesday #18

Welcome to WIP Wednesday. I totally overcommitted for the month of March, and at the moment my brain is zapped, so let's get right to it, shall we?

Ongoing projects:

DQS 10
Very nearly finished! I might even have a completed quilt to post about tomorrow.

3x6 Bee blocks
This is such a cool bee: Everyone uses fabric from their own stash to make blocks for 6 other ladies, according to their stated color preferences. You can make any block you like, but all 6 of the blocks have to be the same design. It's a great way to use up your scraps! Also very nearly finished, and I'll post those with my other March bee blocks.

Supernova Quilt-Along
Yes, I'm hard at work on this as well. And I am officially overwhelmed by the response to my quilt-along—as of last night, 54 of you have joined the Flickr group! Seriously, you guys? You rock my world, as always!

Completed tops awaiting quilting:
Hope Valley (the original Supernova)

Completed quilts awaiting binding:
Modern Meadow

On hold ... still:
Central Park jelly roll quilt
Figgy Pudding quilt
Wonky Log Cabin

This week's stats:
New projects - 2
Completed projects - 0
Currently in progress - 12 (up two from last week)

Okay, your turn! Everybody is welcome to participate—I love to see new faces here. So if you haven't joined my linky before, jump right in, the water's fine! Just link up any post from the past week featuring a work-in-progress. Or, if you're obsessive like me, you can write up a list of ALL your WIPs and link that. Just please remember to link back to my blog, and comment on some of the other links. Because who doesn't enjoy a little comment love?
