WIP Wednesday...a little late

I thought I would drop in and give you guys a quick sneak peak at a WIP! I have like a thousand different WIP's right now, and it seems like I've got deadlines on about everything!!!! But, oh well, I will get it done. (If I keep saying "I think I can I think I can I think I can" maybe I will!!!!) But this particular WIP needs to be done ASAP!
I know I've told you about my addiction to swaps, this is part of a swap. The Modernista swap has been over for a while now, but some people don't follow through with their promises and an Angel was needed. (that just means that someone didn't receive their swap package and someone needed to volunteer to make something for the person missing out) so, being the nice person I am I volunteered! I know I would want someone to volunteer to make me something if I didn't get my package...that's the way I think about it anyways. Sooo, I'm trying to get this package off to my "Angel Partner" as soon as I can since she's already been waiting a long time!!!!
Here's what I've gotten so far....

I made her this cute mug rug (I've been addicted to them quick and easy!!!) and I really love the way it turned out! This will be one of her small items that I'll send her.

I haven't decided whether I'm going to make her big item into a mini quilt for her wall or a pillow for her bed....decisions, decisions!

I chose to use a pattern by Elizabeth Dackson of Don't Call Me Betsy (no real surprise there since I LOVE her patterns!) this one is called Wheel of Fortune (and is available for purchase!!!) I really like how it's turning out so far! I'm making a total of 9 blocks, which will make it 18" square once sewn together....I may add a border or 2....just depends on what I'm feeling when I get to that point!

It is a paper pieced pattern, here's the sections before trimming.

Here is one of the sections all trimmed up and ready to be made into a block!

I can't wait to see this all come together! I hope she will love it!

I'm linking up with Lee over at Freshly Pieced for her WIP Wednesday!

~Hope y'all are having a GREAT day!!!~

Well I think whatever you decide to do with them she will be thrilled to receive them. Not my usual colours but they look sooo good together. Thumbs up on this one :0)
