WIP Wednesday - February 5th

A couple people told me that I hadn't updated my blog lately.  I promise I have been sewing my little fingers off working as a pattern tester.  You know its bad when late the other night, I kept tapping the end of my chair with my foot and wondering why that dang needle wasn't moving!
So my January finishes were a big zero as in nada, nix, none.  But I do have a few projects that I am hoping to get done while I am waiting for the backing fabric to arrive.
1.  Classic Meets Modern QAL.  This month's traditional block is the Amethyst Block.  I decided to make it modern by making the angles all wonky.  It kinda looks like a wonky star block to me.


2.  Le Challenge.  These monthly challenges have been.......well....challenging! 
This month's theme is "the rising sun" and the linkup party is the 15th.  I haven't missed a party yet, so I need to get moving.  Not sure just yet what I am going to do, but I did find a sample of some orange ombre fabric in the Quiltcon goodie bag that I may work with.

3.  Pantone Color Challenge - Radiant Orchid.  This purple/pink color is something that I do not have much of in my stash, but I really want to participate in this year's challenge.  I remember all of the great emerald entries from last year that looked really fun.
2014 Pantone Quilt Challenge: Radiant Orchid
