Wednesday's Works in Progress

I have been working on a slice & dice or stained glass quilt.

Here are a couple of the different blocks:

My blocks are 9x12. I tried to use some FQs that I was saving forever, because I just couldn't cut into them. This free style block design was just the thing to showcase these wonderful fabrics.

I'm also in a 12" block exchange with a group from a retreat I was on last year. I needed to make 12 blocks, and I started with this layout, using the taupe prints (there are 4 - 12" blocks in the picture). However, I somehow miscalculated how much fabric was needed to make 12 blocks, and only ended up with 7, so I chose some different fabrics for the remaining 5, more of a red on the dark diagonal blocks.

These are looking so good, I'm considering doing an entire quilt top with them.
