WIPping it Up!

Well last week I finished my Grandma's quilt and this week I finished my Red Window quilt. I like the red binding. Hopefully the weather will cooperate and I can get some good pictures of it for a Friday finish post.

And since I have taken two quilts off my WIP list in the last two weeks, you know I have to put a new one on. I started a 2014 Pantone quilt challenge quilt in radiant orchid. I'm pretty excited about this quilt so far.

The bottom two blocks are 28" x 28", so I will only need six blocks in total.  It's going pretty quickly, although it would have been quicker if I had used a Jelly Roll. I think before I'm done it will take about 84 - 2 1/2" WOF strips. LOTS of cutting, but a very graphic effect.

Here are this week's stats:
