WIP Wednesday: Squaring Up

It's been a busy week for me—I'm getting ready for not one but two blog hops later this week. Between that, the tote I made as a last-minute gift for a friend, and the usual kid-related chaos around the house, I haven't had time for much else!

Ongoing projects:
Cathedral Square quilt - this quilt features the block I designed for Quiltmaker magazine's 100 Blocks special issue. I'm loving it in (mostly) Flea Market Fancy! I'll be showing you a couple of different layout options for this block in my stop on the 100 Blocks blog hop, coming your way tomorrow.

• Gen X Quilters' Charmed Prints QA
• Halloween quilt
• Farmer's Wife QA
• Figgy Pudding quilt

This week's stats:
New projects - 1 (my Chevron tote)
Completed projects - 1 (Chevron tote again)
Currently in progress - 6

You know the drill—link up any post from the past week featuring a Work In Progress (WIP). Link back here in your own post, and comment comment comment. Have a wonderful week!
