WIP Wednesday

This week, I'm working away on my sailboat quilt.  I've finished all the boats so the next step is to assemble the centre panel and then add the first border.  Once the quilt top is finished, I'll post a picture of the quilt in Jacqueline Morel's book (Le Petit Monde de Jacqueline Morel) so you can see how I've changed it up a bit.

Sailboat quilt in progress

I'm also going to try and get my June block for the Simply Solids Bee done this week - it is a double nine patch.  The first quilt I ever made was a nine patch quilt, so it is a favourite block of mine!

What are you up to this week?
