Wednesday WIP

 I never really know how often or how much of a WIP to share?! I decided to join up with Lee's WIP today, I do like the once a week check of what's in progress.

These pretty star blocks are from last month's Schnibbles... I needed additional fabric and then since I wasn't going to make the deadline decided to make a coordinating runner too. So I have a few HSTs to make before I can finish my additional star blocks.  This pattern calls for charms packs but I used Pam Kitty Mornings fabric for Lecien and there are so many different prints with contrasting colors, varying scale and value that is was quite easy to come up with a cute combination.

This project is an unfinished Guild challenge UFO.  I think it is from last fall? Each member brought strips of black and white fabrics that we swapped and we are allowed to add one solid too.  Typically these type of projects are a suprise but considering my untimeliness I think it's ok! I am hoping to get this done by our March meeting since we have another challenge reveal in April.  I shrunk the template for Gwen Marston's string wedding ring block and am making a table square to use in March since the green gives it a St. Patty's theme.

So that is what is going on here in Minnesota, to see what everyone else is up to check out Lee's linky party.

Your WIP's are both so fun Karen. They'll both be beautiful.

The star blocks have a fun, American summer theme. And I just love the black/white with that green.

I like the stars and the fabrics you are using, but I love the green one.
