Pet Project #32 & Close, But No Cigar On Moda Building Blocks

I sincerely believed I would have a whole flimsy to show off today, but if you follow Pink Doxies on Facebook, you'll know I played hooky with my girls yesterday. It was worth it. Family first, right? We had a ball at IKEA, one of our favorite spots.

I did get right back to sewing last night and this morning, and there is signifigantly progress despite my waywardness. The whole left half is together, and the upper right quadrant. I have 7 more 6" blocks to go, and the last quadrant will be finished. 

My panic over not trimming down all the block immediately to check sizes was soon put to rest. Most came out needing only a bit of trimming and squaring, and a few were made to fit.

Fickle Me is already planning the next project, but it's going to be a WIP finish. I swear.

Now it's your turn to show off your own Pet Project. What's your current obsession, love, or happenin' project? Link it up with The Pet Project Show, and strut your stuff!

I love my boys but Ikea is just more fun when you have girls along. There's no looking around allowed when they are along, just get and go.

Uh, yeah, a trip to Ikea with the girls is a no brainer deal! Quilting sometimes even has to be placed second to such a trip!

Just love the look of this, truly admire the skill of melding fabrics and blocks, truly will be a gorgeous addition when its finished. Tad envious about Ikea ;)

Beautiful job. And don't worry, the quilt police are not timing you. Lol Every quilt in it's own time.

Ikea is fun no matter who you go with. The quilt will be done when it's done until then have fun.
