Just one more

Just one more project...or two. I participated in two recent fabric exchanges, and I have ideas for two new quilts. I needed to sew at least one seam on each so they go from PIGS (projects in grocery sacks) to official WIPS (works in progress) to qualify for the next round of my UFO club.

For the I-Spy, I am going to add sashing to each square, then offset the rows.In the Rainbow swap, we traded 11 squares of each color, and everyone received two sets per color. I am taking each set, and laying them out from light to dark. The second set is a reverse (dark to light), so I will have gradients of each color: red-orange-yellow-green-blue-violet. In this picture I have sewn the blue squares together.

And just for grins, here's my little princess doing a silly dance after jumping off the diving board.
