Week #9 Sew into Solids

Time for the weekly update on my Sew into Solids project!  I'm getting so close to having a finished top... as you can see, I now have 3 rows of 5 blocks finished.  The fourth row is waiting to be joined and then I will be stitching all my rows together.  Yahoo! 

Where would I be without painter's tape for labelling? ;o)

I like the results so far - it's been wonderful seeing how those different values of blue interact with one another.  It's making me excited to see this top finished.   Knowing that I'm within striking distance of having a flimsy,  I'm already considering how I will quilt it.  Can't say I've come up with anything too brilliant on that account.  I need to sit down with a pencil and paper and start doodling up some quilting ideas.

Now I wonder how YOU have progressing with your Sew into Solids project(s). 
 I see that Jane has discovered the love of the granny square block... it looks fantastic in solids!

Here's a few others to visit in the group

Amy is finished piecing Fire and Ice...

Sandi has been quilting her Ironwork quilt (Sandi has a quilt along for it - so you can make one!)...
Amanda  is also quilting and looking forward to binding...

I've not listed everyone here from our Sew into Solids group, but you're welcome to visit each of them and even join in with...
