WIP Wednesdays!

Really, Wednesday already?  Wait….really, February already?  I don’t understand…where does the time go?  Yeah, I know where it goes…time flies when you’re having fun (or at least it seems to fly when you have many many things to do.)

So the run-down of what I’ve been working on this week:

Progress on the Farmer’s Wife Quilt:

As I mentioned last week I started working on a Farmer’s Wife QAL hosted by Lindsey over at Happier Than a Bird Quilts and I’m happy to say that I’m all caught up now thanks to this week’s progress in paper-piecing.  I think I’ve said this like a million gazillion times now…but I really do love these little blocks (so much so that I’m sharing the images again):

A few weeks ago I “tumbled” upon the Tumbler Party Flickr Group hosted by yolanda and it was such fun! We picked a color palette (this round was yellow, gray and aqua), sent 12 FQs to yolanda who so so generously die cut them all, sorted out the stacks and sent everyone back an assortment of tumbler blocks.  How cool is that?!?

Over the weekend I was able to piece together my quilt top and decided to let the colors “flow” from one into another: grey> grey + yellow>yellow>yellow + aqua>aqua and here’s the completed quilt top:

Crud…I just busted myself on the works in progress.  Just went back in search of last week’s blog post to get the list of last week’s in progress projects and I realized that my tumbler party quilt wasn’t listed…oops!

Here’s the skinny:

    I think I have fallen in love with your inspiring layout – I feel compelled to wrap those colors around me and am glad I have not yet sewn mine together!
