WIP Wednesday and I am Taking a Class

I am chugging along on all my projects, but this is the one I am sharing today.  This is the Sasparilla Quilt I am making for my youngest grandson.
 This is the cutest line of fabric. It reminds me of the 50's and my brothers cowboy things.  I bought two colorways and am mixing them together. Right now I need to make a bunch of flying geese blocks for the star points.
 But everything is cut out and in a tote to help keep it all together. That was something I started doing last year with my projects. It helped to be able to put it all way in one place. I need the help keeping my sewing room clean.
I just had to sew a couple pieces together to see how it looked. I am going to love this! I hope B does too. I will show it again when more progress has been made.

Now, I said I was taking a class. On the right side of my blog, you will notice a button for Color Intensive. This is an on line class that Rachel at Stitched in Color is teaching. I am hoping to learn how to get more out of my stash and use it to its best advantage. I can always use more knowledge about color and I think this class will be fun too. Hop on over to Rachel's blog and take a look. Maybe it's something for you too.  See you soon.
Linking up with Freshly Pieced.
