Terry at  Terry’s Treasures is having a Wiggly Whimsy Sew Along.  You can still participate.  Just click on the picture on her sidebar for the directions.  I just finished my second strip.  Above are the first two strips side-by-side.  I will probably wait until I have all the strips made before I start sewing them together. 
This is a close up.  I love the looks of this and think it will make a cute quilt for my granddaughter.   I used the charm square pack Happy, but I noticed today on another blog that scraps were being used.  What a great idea.  I certainly have plenty of scraps and make another one just using my scraps.
On Another Note: 
  • The Spring Fling Shop Hop will be held the week of April 12-20.  Seven shops are participating.  Daily drawings for $20 gift certificates from each shop.  Someone will be the winner of the grand prize: a Janome Sewing Machine!   Get your passport now for only $5. 
  • Quilters Road Trip will be held during the months of April, May, and June.  Twelve area shops are participating.  You get a chance to win a $25 gift certificate each month at each shop.  Also available will be new projects, patterns and giveaways.  Passports are only $5.

On Another NoteJust Crafty Enough has wonderful instructions for making a by your side ironing board.  I wish I had seen this before I tried to make mine last weekend. 

Until next time,

Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!

Your Wiggly strips look great! I love the bright colors! I was going to use scraps for mine, but I needed a break from scrappy. It would make a great bed quilt done scrappy! :0)

Loving your Wiggly quilt!

I made myself a TV tray ironing board a year ago. I intended to only use it at retreats but find I use it just as much at home. I've used it so much that it is approaching time to recover it!

What cheery colors! Perfect on a dreary day like today. :) I can't wait to see the finished quilt.

hope it's not too late ...don't forget the background strip between each of the rows - not pictured in the tutorial but the instructions are there nonetheless! That's unless you want to make it smaller.
PS still working on mine.
