I'm a Baglady

I have been working on a Baglady challenge from Quilting in Indiana. Each person stuffs a gallon ziploc bag with fabric and sends on to a victim :-) who makes a top to return.
Liz sent me a sack 0' florals and I have been doing my best to make something nice for her in return. Last year I sent fabric to her, and this is the gorgeous top she sent back.

So I am hoping to repay the favor and give her a really nice quilt in return. Liz is a very experienced and accurate quilter, so I have been taking my time with these, squaring every subset and then each block in hopes to give her a well pieced squared top in return.
These are some of the blocks I have been playing with on my design wall, not exactly sure how I'm going to set these but I do like the scrappiness of them.

What a challenge to make something for a quilter who you know to be very accurate. Looks good so far.

I haven't heard of the baglady challenge before, but it's a neat (and scary!) idea. She certainly made a beautiful and dramatic quilt for you, and you're well on your way to returning the compliment! Good luck deciding on a layout.
