WIP Wednesday

I've joined up with the recently formed Fort Worth Modern Quilting Guild and we're following Sew Mama Sew's Modern Block of the Month, though we're several months behind them.  I wasn't particularly excited about the pattern until I saw it in my own fabrics. 

I've been seeing this pattern pop up several different places and really like it. It lays out similar to the cross/plus quilt. I had in mind some particular fabrics to use and a certain person to give the finished quilt to. But now I'm not thinking she will totally love those fabrics. So should I choose different fabrics? Or should I make her a different quilt?

This is my first time playing around with a log cabin block. I'm not sure where I'll go with it yet. I will probably make these blocks bigger, and will for sure make some more blocks. This jelly roll had been floating around for a couple years and I figured it was time I did something with it.

This is my new design wall! It's just a flannel sheet tacked up but I love it! I pulled out these double hourglass blocks from ages ago and was reinspired to keep making them. My hope is for a king size!
You can also see 2 finished tops hanging also. The one on the right is awaiting basting and the one on the left is waiting for me to choose some backing fabric and decide how to quilt it.
And Daniel thinks he has to be in every picture.

I decided to keep a note with them so I can see how I'm progressing. I need about 130 more!

What are you up to?
