Reddirt Retreat: When will the projects get done?

Last fall EveLyn Perkinds, Bobbie Holt, and myself drove up to LaSal, Ut to participate in an overnight quilting retreat.  It was so fun, and we learned a lot.

Here is one of the projects almost finished.  It was made from a stack of "griddle cakes"  Forty 10" x 10" squares.  I cut mine from my stash of purple fabric.

I've seen some of these "stack and whack" type quilts set together with narrow black sashing, which I think would have subdued this quilt a bit.  It seems a little busy to me.

This will be a baby quilt.  It's called "The Wave" and is also a good pattern to use up stash.  I need to add one or two more columns to it.
