WIP Wednesday #18

So...  Where did February go?  Am I the only one who completely missed it??  Actually I didn't miss 'it' I just didn't slow down long enough to blog. 

Here are a few things I've been working on...

My guild had a retreat and I Started and Finished this quilt top there...
Batiks are definitely a favorite to work with so I really enjoyed this.  Add to that the Log Cabin pattern is a favorite this quilt was a pleasure to create  :) 

Well, I decided to go with a different pattern with Mason's quilt when he decided to move out and get a Queen size bed.  The original quilt was to be couch size and two sided so switching to a quilt size with a plain back is what I'm going with.  This is the quilt in processes.  I looked and can not find anywhere that this block has been used so I might be an original design...  Came to me in the shower - I swear!  If anyone know of it please let me know!
Queen Size approx 96" square

I have several people who want this quilt, my husband included, 
so I see myself making it again, if I ever finish this one!!

The "old" Mason quilt is on my other wall.  It's actually more 'there' than it appears as every block is actually two!!  So when it's half laid out - it will be all the pieces  :)



And lastly, we had our reveal for Challenge 2 at the Creative Conglomeration last Thursday.  This is my creation....  



This is one of seven quilts revealed!!  If you have a chance check out the blog!
