WIP Wednesday: Colorful Progress

WIPWednesday
Got WIPs? You know I do. : )

Summer Sampler Series Mosaic block First up—more Summer Sampler! I'm teaching all of the Summer Sampler Series blocks over the next few months as part of my "Modern Sampler" class at a local quilt store. I've got a great group of ladies in this class and I'm so looking forward to making this quilt again with all of them. And in solids this time around! The block above is the Mosaic block.

Making progress on a baby quilt Finally made some progress on this very overdue baby quilt. My design was completely inspired by Adrianne's incredible "Rebel Amish" quilt.

Bundle for my next pattern And I'm itching to dig into this little stack, which is destined for my next pattern quilt. : )

You've got WIPs too, right? Whatever you're sewing, link it up here. Just remember 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?

I love that sampler block, such bright colours! It's making me want to make a florescent coloured quilt - how 80s retro would that be?!

I am loving the solids mosaic block. I'm glad you shared that one. I am pulling fabrics for a quilt made of solids right now. I had a hard time decided between Kona black or grey for the background and I was really leaning towards grey. Your block has helped finalize my decision to go with grey. It looks great!

Love the solid SSS block! How fun that you are teaching! I love to teach sewing. I keep telling myself that there will be plenty of time to do stuff after the kids are a bit older. "enjoy it now, enjoy it now, enjoy it now..." Right? :)

I love the WiP baby quilt, one of my most favourite, favourite people ever is having a baby. I think you may have just inspired me to get cracking on a quilt for her little one!

I love that block. I'm working on something pretty similar in solids for a bee block. I'm thinking that it would make a pretty awesome quilt.
