WIP Wednesday

It has been a very long time since I have shared on WIP Wednesday with the Needle and Thread Network ,maybe 2015 I will get better at that ;-)  So what have I been working on , well a couple of things , my charming star blocks a SAL with Terry and I have three more blocks made and several in the making but I won't bore you with a picture of those right now , I will wait until I finish the top  . I have also been trying to finish off my Aurifil blocks for 2014 , I only had December to do and when I made it is too big , I was very careful with piecing and cutting and remeasured all the way along yet it is still too big so I decided to make a new block and chose first a basket block from Quilters Cache , I got very discouraged when it wasn't quite right either , the points are cut off on the basket , I might be able to fix this one but I was determined to get one right so chose a block from the 2013 Pat Sloan BOM , sorry I don't recall the name of the block but it turned out perfect .

 The block in the upper left corner was the December block which is too large then you can see the basket block to the right and the final correct size block below it , just checked and it is called Good Vibrations . I made all of these blocks using 30's reproduction prints I had on hand and really had to scrounge to get those last couple of blocks but it is great I have used them up . I love the suggested setting for these blocks and will need to make a large block for the center and the whole thing is done on point , wish me luck . I won't get to this for a while as I want to finish off the Charming stars first . I did enjoy taking part although I don't really care for some of these blocks but it is always a great learning process . 
 Today I am starting on some PJ's for my granddaughter a different type of sewing for this very cold day here on the east coast . 
 Before I go I just want to ask those who are participating in the Valentine Postcard exchange if they have all received their partners names and addresses . I think I have them all sent out but want to be sure I don't want to miss anyone and remember mail out date is on or before February 1st. Thanks .
 Thanks to everyone for stopping by today and be sure to hop on over to see what others are up to this week .
 Hugs Sheila
