WIP Wednesday: To the Point

It's after midnight on Wednesday, my brain's a little fogged, and I can't think of anything to say other than that it's Wednesday. So let's just get right to it, shall we? : )

New York Beauty block
Completed projects:
New York Beauty table runner - It's here, in case you missed it.

New projects:
Cathedral Square quilt. I got some happy mail yesterday: My copies of Quiltmaker magazine's "100 Blocks" special issue arrived. Not only do I have a block in this issue ...

... they put my name on the cover! I definitely had a "holy crap" moment when I pulled my copies out of the package. I knew it was going to be on there, but it was fun to see it in person.

Cutting my FMF!
Anyway, I'm doing Quiltmaker's "100 Blocks" blog hop next week, so I decided a new quilt with my block would be the perfect opportunity to get my Flea Market Fancy fix. Hopefully I'll finish it in time! (And yes, there will be giveaways galore, so be sure to come back for the hop!)

Back-Burner:
• Gen X Quilters' Charmed Prints QA
• Halloween quilt
• Farmer's Wife QA
• Figgy Pudding quilt

This week's stats:
Completed projects - 1
New projects - 1
Currently in progress - 6

You know the drill—link up any post from the past week featuring a work in progress. Then comment, comment, comment. Have a wonderful week!
