This first one isn't really a work in progress, as all I have here to show you is the fabric. But! I was asked today to make a block for a quilt (wow, word gets around fast!) that is being made for the student organization at work. For those of you who don't know, I work at the Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital, attached to the University of Wisconsin - Madison.

I must use at least some of this fabric...

but can add any of my own to make a 12 1/2 inch block. Due date is June 30. I think I have enough time.

And, here is a table runner, of sorts. It'll measure about 20 x 26 inches when finished...something like that, anyway. I had a charm pack of 27 5" squares. Made them into the disappearing nine-patch blocks and, after they were all cut apart, mixed them all up. I am not sure that this is the finished layout...I'll leave it for awhile, then go back to look. Inevitably, I'll see something I want to sure this is about the 67th attempt. If you have any suggestions...please, feel free!

huh...I just thought...if I used only 9 of the 12 blocks, it'd be square...wonder if that would make it easier/better?
Okay, here it is with square. I think I like this better.
That's it for now.

I like your second arrangement better too, colors show better.
I need to rethink my big one, only made a few blocks and wondering if I want to continue or get more scrappy with it.
