Design Wall Monday

I have a new version of Cut It Up on the wall today, but I don't think I'll get back to it for at least a week.

I'm nearing the end of my long-term sub job (my last day is Tuesday, March 15th) and I've got a bunch of stuff to do to finish up with that, as well as prep for my next umbrella workshop. my upcoming classes, and two scheduled trunk shows.

This is an easy quilt and I decided that I needed to make another version of it that didn't look so "Christmasy." I can't find a picture of the completed green quilt, so this partial one will have to do for now. Oops!

The new version is also a different size because I used a layer cake for this one rather than yardage like I did for the green quilt. I've adjusted this quilt to a bunch of different sizes. It's so simple to do and is perfect when I need a quick project.  
I'll try to get better pictures soon, because neither of these show the real colors. They are much prettier than shows here.
Another cool thing about this quilt is that there is no right or wrong way to lay out the blocks. I usually try to make it so I don't have to match up the inset strips, which makes sewing the rows simple. Easy Peasy!
What are you working on today?

That's a neat block - I have a layer cake I might try it with, since I have no idea what else to do with it! :)

Love both of these and what a super block to play with.
