Wednesday Works in Progress...lots!

and a Happy Sunny Wednesday to all in Blogland *VBS* Busy weekend is past, and supposedly summer has begun...but we've had freeze warnings the past 2 nights, and my furnace continues to run as needed...brrr! I'm back in stride with cutting up scraps...an hour or so a day, at the dining room table, really produces results! Some are being used in the Orange Crush mystery...especially the lights!
 THIS is what's on my list today. I have enough of this "Kitchen Sink" variation(San, at Gypsy Quilters design) to sew an 88" X 96" top. I hope to get the pairs laid out today and joining them into rows.
 Bonnie has posted the 5th step in our mystery, and this is what my blocks will look like! I love them. Here's 9 blocks laid out together. I had lunch with Betsy yesterday, and she fell in love with the secondary pattern they form. I hope everyone was safe from Saturday nights storms across the nation, and that you all had a lovely Memorial Day weekend *VBS*

Wow! Your Orange Crush is looking good! There are a lot of quilters doing this mystery! Can't wait to see everyone's finished quilt tops!
I'm having a blast with this blogging stuff! It is really holding me to task, so I am hoping to get quite a few of my UFOs out of the way in order to take part in an online mystery or Dear Jane...
Happy stitching!

Oh no - I'm not ready for summer yet . . . please tell me that it won't really begin until June *s*
Love those cheery Crush blocks.

I like going around blogland and seeing all the different Orange Crush quilts being made. We put our AC on and then it turned cold and nasty. Go figure. But since it is the home of a quilter, we have just dug out quilts to snuggle into while watching teevee in the evening.

The Orange Crush looks great! Really coming together well. I agree with Paula, it's so much fun to see everyone's OC quilts!

That Kitchen Sink is great for I Spy stuff, or just about any type of scrap. Lookin' good!

Pat said...

Very nice, Finn. I like the secondary pattern that is emerging from your Orange Crush, too.

Your orange Crush blocks are great. I can't wait to see your finished quilt.

So pretty, Finn! I love how your OC is turning out. I finished the blocks today...and I have leftovers. Are they for the border? I am glad you went out to lunch and had fun. It is soooo hot here! Or is that a hot flash??

Gypsy Quilter said...

Wooo Hooo, another Kitchen Sink will be up and running. Very exciting!

Oh, I wish I had the time for the OC, it is looking so good! I am going to have to flit around and look at everybody's!

and the kitchen sink is wonderfully scrappy, too!
