What have I been up too

I am in between large projects at the moment. So I have been working on a child size scrap quilt. I made a Christmas coffee cup, not sure if I like the size of it. I think I will try and double the block size. I have also made a orphan block of the pattern block that I want to use for my nephew's graduation quilt. Block seems easy enough. Now I need to get the fabrics together. Ideas are floating around my head. The Mr. Grinch top is finished. It is too large for me to get a photo of it at this time. After I get it quilted I will have my husband and son hold it up so I can get a picture.

Mr. Grinch

January was crazy busy at work. Though I did get some time in to do a little bit of quilt making. I ordered this cool Grinch panel back in September. Plan was to make my husband a Grinch Christmas quilt. I also ordered a few quarter and half yards of coordinating fabric. From October through December I picked up fat quarters to use. I got EQ-7 for Christmas. 

Here is what I designed for Mr. Grinch.

Ignore how the panel looks in the middle. (Still learning how to use my EQ). As I post this I have almost finished all the star block. I have the red border cut and ready to sew on.
