PMQG WIP Wednesday

Today we are having the first every PMQG linky party! I am looking forward to seeing what our guild members are working on and blogging about. Here is a round of some of the projects that I've worked on and have been working on lately. 

Two years ago I took a class with Susan Beal after her book Modern Log Cabin Quilting came out. I finished the first quilt I made in that class, which was a wedding gift for my sister. I have had plans to finish the second quilt I started to bring to our annual PMQG summer picnic. I better get cracking - that is only two weeks away! 
The first log cabin blog I made with the sweet kit that Susan gave away at a book signing in Sisters two year ago. Has it really been two years?
My 'Spirit of '76' picnic quilt blocks. Getting there!
We recently had a container swap with our guild members at PMQG. Here is the one I made for my swap partner: she said she wanted something for knitting and that she liked primary colors. Silly me for not taking a picture of the finished piece. 
I used the lining fabric for inspiration for the piecing. 
Here is the container almost finished!
At the end of May I took a paper piecing class with Carolyn Friedlander at Modern Domestic. I used the Olive Pattern to make a thank you gift for the staff at my daughter's school.

And I want to share this wonderful project that was made by Kathy Vulcan using my One Way or Another quilt design that is currently in McCalls Quick Quilts. She sent me the photo and a lovely story about how she made this to cheer up a friend. Thanks so much for sharing that with me Kathy!

So, to answer the question, what am I working on right now, I'd like to quote my 14 year old daughter and say, 'IDK, OMG - like, what am I not working on right now?' 
Back to work!
