WIP Wednesday

It's been a while since I had a WIP Wednesday post. I guess I have been working on a few quicker projects that never make it to WIP status...

Mostly photos today, so this will be in english only.

I have my first 4 blocks finished. These were very easy to assemble and turned out quite cute.

Block 1 detail - love those little birdies in a row!

Block 2 detail - candy cane striped:)

Block 3 detail - a cute birdie and a squirrel in a tree

Block 4 detail - ooops, I think I assembled this upside down... See the leaves on the berries (or whatever they are? They are pointing down...)

Cherry Blossom Quilt using California Girl from Moda

I finally got the first block assembled last night. With only 9 blocks for the quilt, this should go fast!

Oh wait, not so fast, because I did this:
Sewing after 10PM...

Shouldn't be sewing after 10 p.m. apparently.

Fixed it this morning and got this - much better:
Cherry Blossom Block 1

Dear Jane - I now have 20 of 169 square blocks completed!

Name tag for RATZ (rapid and tiny zakka) swap

Making it up as I go - I know my recipient likes these colors. I think I have a plan for what do with this... The squares are 3/4". I will be cutting it down a bit. On the diagonal, I believe...
