Friday Night sew in

I started the night working on one of my bees. The theme for this month was "eat". My partner for this month wants yellow in her blocks. This is what I made for her. Then I caught up on some of my cutting. This is all the cutting for the "Not a Quilt Along" . The finished top looks almost like a whirlygig. I am using 5 inch i spy squares for the charm pack.
Then I needed to get caught up with my "Crazy Mom Quilts" quilt along. I hadn't finished the cutting from week one.
Here is my center block. I really like how clean the quilt will look.
I am amazed that sometimes in quilting you do a lot of work but you can't really record it with a picture. That is the way i feel about sashing. I am working on sashing and squaring up the blocks for 2 quilt tops. When i am done sashing i can sew them together and then it will look like an accomplishment. This was a great Friday Night Sew in. Yeah!

The piece of pie block is fantastic!

I agree with you, sometimes in quilting you put in a lot of work but you really don't have anything interesting to show for it. It's a good thing I enjoy the process so much because it takes me a long time to finish something.
