Wip Wednesday

I'm in a holding pattern this week - still making a bit of progress on my two most active quilt-alongs, but not much more because last week was parent-teacher conference time and this week is finals week.  There is an insane amount of grading in my immediate future.  I'm not much farther along on my knitting projects, either.
Farmer's Wife Quilt block #59: Night and Day.  This one was definitely only achievable for me by paper piecing.  I chose scraps of a light blue ocean fishing print for the Day (I mostly cut around the fish!) and scraps of a dark blue celestial chart print for Night.
Block # 60: Noon and Light.  This one is a wee bit smaller than 6.5", I've been doing the Crumb-along and wasn't as careful as I should have been with the seam allowance.  But I ripped and resewed three seams and I think it will work.
Block # 61: Northern Lights.  Okay, I guess.  At least I'm past the halfway mark now.  This quilt is going to happen.
Another quilt past the halfway mark is the Crumb-along quilt.  I made a bunch more blocks this week, bringing the total to 71, I think.  I kind of want to finish all the crumb blocks and then have a big cleanup of my sewing area.   But it's fun.

I have the Megaquilter back but still haven't reconnected it.  I need to get busy with that, but it will probably have to be after finals week.  Be sure to check out all the other goings-on at Freshly Pieced, and also take a look at the Bloggers' Quilt Festival if you haven't already.

Love the day and night block - a real eye catcher! and your crumbs are coming along nicely too. I would also like to be able to clean up the sewing area, but I have to actually finish this first (that is my story and I'm sticking to it!). Great job.

I love the day and night quilt block as well. It would be amazing as a larger block - congrats on your progress on that quilt.
