I came across a WIP (works in progress) blog hop this morning starting here at Freshly Pieced. How fun it was to see so many others enjoying the art of quilting. The projects are varied as are the stories that go with them. It is easy to miss out when there is such an abundance of blogs to choose from but fun to take a few minutes (hours) every so often and see what trends are happening. The timing was great too since I have a couple myself. OK, not just a couple but only a couple got photographed for today. I actually did start a list yesterday of WIPs and it is getting long:)
For today though I will start with one that has been hanging around for a while now and getting closer to finished. I wrote about it here. One day this little Drunkard's Path will be finished.

So even though they are finished at this moment, they weren't until just last night. These are fun, quick little mug rugs for charity baskets I am assembling. I guess the WIP part is that the baskets aren't done:) I found some cute baskets at the local thrift shop along with some fun mugs and then created the quiltlets to match so I can have themes.

Lastly, Hexagons! This is the trend I noticed as I went through the blog hop and seeing others' blogs as well. I made some once before and they were adorable at 3/4" finished but these are so much more fun when made big! These particular ones are 4-1/2" made using Moda charm square packs. I took out the solid squares and designed redwork to go on those since I do love handwork. The big question was to randomly assemble or put into flower shapes and applique onto squares for a wall hang??? I am leaning toward flowers, I think:)
I linked up at Freshly Pieced...come enjoy the Show and Tell.
