Plugging Along

I haven't been doing a ton of sewing but I am slowly plugging away at my postage stamp quilt along (there is still time to join and you know you want too).  I am hoping to stay on track with this one because all of those who do will be entered into a drawing at the end.  Well you don't have to stay on track you just have to have a finished top by the deadline.  I changed out my rotary blade and spent a ton of time cutting my strip sets into strips to be sewn back together into the blocks this morning.

After that I managed to get the first too blocks sewn together.  One of each the A block and the B block.  I am sure that when I chain piece this process will go much faster but I really wanted to see a finished blocked so I started there.  I'm using Innocent Crush and Bella White for my fabrics.  I haven't decided on my backing and binding yet.  I have my favorite prints but they may not lend themselves to being the best choices.  What about you, what would you use?  I'd love to hear about the projects your working on now that 2011 is in full swing just because I need more ideas like I need a hole in the head.  Happy Sewing!
