WIP Wed, and June ALYoF Goal

Besides my various quilt alongs, I've decided that June will be the month that I try to sew all of my local swap blocks together into a quilt top or 2.

Over 6 months this past winter, several of us in town sewed up 12 of these 8 inch blocks each month, alternating with the black and white fabric to create a checkerboard quilt.  The center of each block is fussy cut fabrics.  I have 72 now, plus a few extras that I made.

I'm debating if I should about add a sashing to them.  Several of the fussy cut prints are very child-oriented, so I may also split off some to make into a kid quilt for either a niece or nephew or for Project Linus.  It's not only fun to look at wide variety of the center fabrics, but also all of the various black and white prints!!

I'm linking up at Freshly Pieced WIP Wed, and Fiber of All Sorts A Lovely Year of Finishes.  Come see what others are working on!


  1. those pops of color with all the b&w are so fun. i always like that look.

  2. I admit to finding it a bit dizzying to look at, but it's certainly fresh and fun!
