WIP Week Four: More Penny Patch Progress

Got a little further on my Penny Patch quilt this week. Not as far as I would like, but I’m enjoying the process and learning a lot.

For example, I’m learning that if my prints are directional, and I point them in the wrong direction, I may have to get out the seam ripper!

Nobody likes an upside-down tree.

I accidentally had some very cute fabric sent to the wrong address! When the post office returned it to Klinko (no affiliation), she put it right back in the mail to me. I got it just in time to use it instead of another pink fabric, and I’m loving the adorable hamsters. (Yes, I’m 36, and yes, this quilt is for me …)

Is anyone planning to do the Gen X Quilters Vice Versa BOM next year? I really like it, but am trying to decrease my number of WIPs. Help me find a good excuse. πŸ˜‰
