Works in Progress Wednesday - February 29, 2012

Happy Leap Day! We're just getting back from two fabulous days of skiing at Mont Tremblant in Quebec. Man, I love skiing! The back held up -- yay! My older boys loved it, but son #3 picked up what son #2 had last week so the hubster and I took turns hanging out with him. Both boys are back to themselves so all's good. We're just wondering who's next to succumb. He he.

Colour My World Purple Challenge: This week, my purple piece/mini quilt went from this...

to this?
 Or maybe this?
Thank you for giving me your advice on Monday. I'll be working madly tonight to finish this up for the Colour My World Purple linky party tomorrow so check back then to see what happened to my tulip, to link up if you are participating in the challenge, and to see what others have done this month. 

Like last time, I'll also do a linky for quilts with purple in them. It doesn't matter when they were made or whether you are participating in the challenge, but if you have a quilt with purple it in, it would be great if you could link it up so we can see how purple works with other colours. 

Modern Block Monday Sampler - This week was Higgledy-Piggledy by Kate Henderson. Feeling kind of eihn! about this one because there seems to be something weird going on optically with the middle two rows. It looks fine with the other blocks so I'll probably leave it alone.

Wee Spy quilt - This one is done, but I'll share it next week when I host TGIFF! 

FMQQAYGQAL/QAYGFMQQAL - I haven't done the designs yet, but hope to do them and post about them by Saturday because I think the linky party over at Quokka Quilts is this week.

On Hold/UFO Mash-up:
Chop Suey
Wee Spy quilt
Red and Tan Amish Wedding Ring
Spiral/Spring seta colour
Wedding quilt
