WIP Wednesday....for my honey

Things have been pretty quiet around the blog, but i am working on projects all the same. 

I have finished a few small quilts and now have set to work on a twin size for my husband. 





I don't know what he is going to think, but I am in L-O-V-E with this one.

I am hugely inspired by and totally crazy in love with this quilt by Emily at MLE knits, who got the basic directions here.





As i make each block i think that this one for sure is my favorite, until i make another and then i love that one even more. I am smitten!

It is going to take a little time....18 down and about 100 more to go...work will be slow but sure. i manage to squeeze a few in every day.





Here is a little layout sneaky peeky!

Happy WIP Wednesday. Head over to Freshly Pieced and ogle some of the other amazing things getting worked on this week.
