W.I.P. Wednesdays

Well I have been busy with my McCall's QDS  Challenge 1 and have submitted it to them, you can check it out on the 19 of June on the McCall's Quilting web site. I will have a pic on my blog as well.
And now that I have that all taken care of I have started on my square in a square quilt from the conference 2 weeks ago I have put all the blocks together and now just have to cut the setting blocks and put it all together. There is no right way or wrong way to do this one. You build your base pieces and play with them from there to create your blocks, each a little different and no two quilts will be the same. I found that the scrappier your choices in fabrics the more variety you will have with your finished blocks .Here are a few of the blocks I put together.

this is what a scrappier one would look like with 16 blocks
I did manage to get 21 sew I will use 20 to make my little quilt.
they are 6 in finished blocks

I will be linking with The Needle and Thread Network this week , be sure to check out what everyone else has been up to as well. ( link on my side bar)
