A Whole Lotta Sewing Going On!

Yes, I have actually gotten some sewing done this week so far! Saturday was our Saturday Sewcial for quilting guild and they decided to do the Double Slice Layer Cake Quilt by Missouri Star Quilt Co. Luckily I'd already done this one once before, Mack's quilt. I decided to use up some of my 10" squares I acquired in a rainbow layer cake swap I did not too long ago over at Distant Pickles. It's going to be very bright but I like it. I didn't get mine totally sewn together because I had to come home and trim up the blocks. Unfortunately not everyone's 10" is the same... but that's okay! It all works out in the wash and this quilt is very forgiving.
I'm still working on getting it placed together.
Then there's what's up on my design board. The little bit I've done on a gray, yellow and aqua Granny Square quilt, and what I've done on a Christmas Soda Pop quilt (Yule Pop).
Yes, if you look closely in the middle of the left side you can see my red and white hexie in a pile back there in on the bedside table in the extra bedroom.
Oh, and don't forget the Carpenter's Wheel quilt. I went back on all the squares and removed the print corners, replacing them with white. I had seen a few online and I liked how it gave a bit of a secondary design with the white plus signs. Here they are all draped on my quilt rack.
And here's the one on the floor, ready to be sewn together.
I didn't mean for it to, but I think this quilt is going to end up a little Christmas-ey looking color wise! So I have been working!

Working of the sewing kind is never a bad thing.
