Work in Progress Wednesday

I'm working on a couple of quilts at the same time.  I go from one project to the next.  My quilts have gotten quite piece-y, so there is a bit of cutting involved.  When I've had enough of one color-way and cutting streak, I move onto the next.

The first is strip pieced comprised of 2.5" black, white, and yellow squares.  I'm trying to do the entire thing in stages.  Cut it all.  Pin it all.  Sew it all.  Repeat.  Except, when I run out of pins.  In a previous post, I mentioned that I didn't quite cut some of the white fabric accurately, so I'm having a little difficultly lining up the seams and making things "square".  I'm just going with it, though.  We'll see how it turns out.  Hopefully not too noticeable.


The second project is using Innocent Crush by Anna Marie Horner.  I'm in love with this quilt and in love with HSTs right now.  I'm trying to combine the two loves.  So far, I have two piles of small 2.5" squares.  Soon, these will be some very small HSTs.  It's going to be a lot of marking, pinning, sewing, cutting, and more pinning.  I consider it a longterm project, so don't expect to see much progress in a timely manner.

These are both projects I can stop and start easily, which is good when you have to run after a one-year-old!
