Work in Progress Wednesday

It has been awhile since I have shared what I have been working on.  This is a fairly new project--I think I am on Day 10 of making these Cartwheel Blocks.  I saw this free block on 'Freshly Pieced' several months ago (I believe you have to purchase the pattern now).  I downloaded and printed it and added that piece of paper to my "Things to Try" clipboard.  I finally had a window of time to play around with it last week.
 These were my first two blocks.  I was hooked!  Now I should clarify a few things.  I shrunk Lee's pattern down by 60%.  Her block (that is in the pattern) makes an 11 inch block.  After the shrinking, my block is 7 inches.  Also, I am foundation piecing these--I think her may be paper pieced.


 This was the progress as of Sunday....
 and here is the progress as of this morning!  I haven't played around with the placement yet--this is just random.  What do you think?  I love it--but I will not be making any more dark blocks--I think there are enough of those and I have to spread those around.  I have plans to make a total of 63 blocks--so I have about 20 more to go!

I am linking up to WIP Wednesday over at Freshly Pieced!
