October Let's Book It - Strips and Squares

The end of the October is almost here and Sharon of Vrooman's Quilts has this month's Let's Book it Challenge linky party started.  I'm a bit behind in my blog reading (Internet issues this week), so I completely missed that she'd posted till late this morning.  

After two years of working on the same challenge project, last month I got to start on a new let's book it project finally.  The project is Bejeweled from this book by Susan Guzman.  

I'm not making the cover quilt, but one of the other fun projects called Bejeweled.  I don't have a lot of it done, just some parts and pieces up on the design wall. 

The 36 teal square in a square blocks are done and just 12 more of the pink ones to finish up.  I've also got a start on the first set of strips.  I'm hoping these fabrics all work and play together in the final project.  Not too much more and I'll be able to start working on various sections of the quilt.  Since this quilt has to be done by May, it's on the fast track.  

You can see more Let's Book it projects over at Vrooman's Quilts.

It's coming along nicely. I did order and receive the book - pages marked for next year's project to-dos.

I can see why it's called Bejeweled. Pretty colors.

I don't know what the final layout will be, but those colors look so pretty together. I especially like the teal blocks. Looks like you've made great progress!
