Work In Progress

Hey Guys!

Do you remember these pictures!  I have been racking my brain on how to put these block together.  This week, this will be my WIP.  Today I finished sewing white squares around them all.  This will be a set for a friend who ALREADY HAD THE BABY!  I am so disappointed in myself for not getting it done sooner.  Hopefully tomorrow I will have some real progress!
