WIP Wednesday - a productive week

WIP Wednesday with guest blogger Michelle  at CityHouseStudio has some amazing inspiration so be sure to check it out.

It's been a busy week despite the lingering migraines trying to keep me down.  The pieced back for Old Italian Block aka: OIB is now together.
Here's another shot of the front in case you missed it:
Ready to sandwich and quilt.

I'm in love with the F+F=AMS block choice (I say that every month) and pleased to have mailed them off while still in the month of August.

I added the border to "Cat Chevron for Kitty" and like how the center now floats and the little fish look like they are swimming around in circles.  Have you ever seen the sardines at the Monterey Bay Aquarium? - my kids loved that tank - so mesmerizing. 
I've been admiring the Quilt Con blocks featured each morning in the newsletter and today in the Pick Up Stick grouping one of our South Bay Area Modern Quilt Guild members Jenny was included -  and her husband Paul's Squarish Piecing block seen below on the design wall- congrats to them both - way to represent!
July SBAMQG meeting Quilt Con Challenge
Hope you're all having a wonderful week.  My boys are back in classes although they drive themselves to college which isn't the same as holding their hand and walking them to class like the old days.  Back to school around these parts also means crazy traffic jams on my commute to the office so I'd better sign off and get on the road.
