OBW - Day 2

After a quick start last night, I was really wanting to work on this One Block Wonder again. When I was ready for church this morning I sat down and sewed 5 blocks while I waited. Work was slow today which was a huge change from yesterday. I was feeling great when I got home, so we cleaned out our entire closet. Out with all the summer clothes! It feels great to have it all cleaned up again. Then it was back to work on the OBW. I got another 20 blocks done tonight. It's about a throw size now, so by the time I get it done, it'll be about a queen with some borders. I have 45 blocks left to make. I'm loving how it's turning out, but it's completely covered my design wall, so I'll have to figure something else out now. I am using the One Block Wonder book and you can see a bit of the original peach koi fabric in the picture foreground.

We're on day 8 of the 100 days 100 blocks challenge and so far I'm at 59! I can't believe it, I don''t know when I've made this many blocks in a week. I may have to up my challenge to myself. Jen's doing an awesome job with her blocks too.
