WIP Wednesday #21

Little projects here and there but nothing BIG complete or worked on this week...

I started quilting the wedding present that I am working on and found that the backing wasn't laying flat so I un-pinned and re-pinned my 'sandwich' to make sure it was flat with no wrinkles...  Have to say that 'un-pinning' is right up there with 'un-sewing' on my list of favorite things to do!!  Augh!  It's ready to go again and I plan to quilt it on Sunday!!  

Over the past week I completed several blocks for the Comfort Quilts at my guild SVQG.  Here are a couple of pictures.    
2-12"x12" finished size
9 of the 10-6"6" finished size
 Can't wait to see what they do with all the different blocks our members create!

The big reveal of our SVQG 2012 Mini Challenge Quilts is at a Pot Luck on Thursday evening!  Can't wait  :)
Here's another little peek at mine :)

I love those blocks for the comfort quilt!
Recently we made the walker bags as a guild project. I didn't get in on the Ronald McDonald house project.
They are working on a quilt for the show in 2013.
One lady is collecting star blocks for quilts of valor.
I don't know what the next project will be.
