WIP Wednesday, Penguin edition


The penguin quilt is coming along nicely.  I have sewn a bunch of WOF strips into pairs lengthwise.  These are just some of them spread out on my ironing board.  I plan to sew pairs of the pairs together lengthwise and then cut them into units width wise.  Then I'll sew those units into long strips of scrappy goodness.  Make sense? 

The quilt in my mind {which hopefully I can recreate in fabric} is inspired by this quilt made by Rachel over at Stitched in Color.  I'm going to space larger pieces of penguin fabric throughout the quilt.

I'm linking up today with WIP Wednesday over at Freshly Pieced and WOW at Esther's Blog
Happy Wednesday everybody!
