WIP Wednesday: Getting It Together

Why, hello, Wednesday—where did you come from? It snuck up on me again, you guys! And I don't have a lot to show you this week, since I basically spent the past seven days just finishing up my Candy Coated quilt.

Click here to check out the finished quilt. It was a fun one!

But I've got a brand new stack of fabric that I'm cutting into later today. This quilt will be a gift for a certain long-hoped-for baby. Yes, there are some narwhals in there—and apparently I'm really digging the whole gray/yellow/etc. color scheme lately!

So I'm relying on you all to make up for my lack of WIPpy-ness by linking up your own WIP posts! Here are the rules:

1. Link up any post from the past week that features at least one unfinished work-in-progress (WIP).
2. Somewhere in your post, you must link back here to my blog. (Or grab my WIP Wednesday button for your sidebar.)
3. Comment on at least a few of the other WIP Wednesday links. Because what fun is a linky party without comments? : )

Happy Wednesday, everybody!

Ah, but Lee--you've had a week liked most of us do. I am always amazed at the things you get done, so one week isn't anything to judge by. And I always like seeing quilts in progress--even quilts that have been completed and blogged about at some other time.

Whatever did you do with your Madrona Road (shown last week)? Is it tucked away for inspiration to strike?
