But damned close! If you're a long time reader, you'd be forgiven for thinking "Hey. Haven't I seen this somewhere before?" The answer is yes. Yes, you have. You can read more about them in my ALYOF Goal Post for July
First up, trimming. When one receives improv blocks from eleven different quilters, some size variation is pretty much expected. I trimmed these lovelies down to 11 inches.
There was a lot of trimming. I have to take pictures like this so that my studio isn't filled with random piles of trimmings. Something about them makes me so happy. #littlethings
Once trimmed, they hung out on the trusty design wall, sharing space with Technicolor Galaxy. ☺ I knew right off I that I needed a layout that stretched these 11 blocks... I'm committed to doing something with these to get them off the The List
, but I don't want a huge time investment!
Don't worry, I'm not doing some funky see through business. Kona White is going to fill those gaps... eventually. Off I went to make two more blocks!
What a fiddly business! I needed six of these panels to make two blocks. Can you tell which one I deemed unworthy and voted off the design wall island?
My WIP has progressed a little further than this, but today is not a day for picture taking. You'll just have to be patient, dear reader!
I'm linking up today with the lovely Lorna's Let's Bee Social @ Sew Fresh Quilts
, as well as WIP Wednesday @ Freshly Pieced
. Pop on over and see what the quilty peeps are up to this week!
Don't you love that your design wall is big enough to hold two projects?ReplyDelete
2013?!! It's easy to stick them on a shelf, wait for the inspiration to hit and eventually drag them back out! But you did, and you are! I'm a sucker for trimmings...you got the centerfold porn going on! Seeing your Technicolor Galaxy reminds me just how far behind I am! I need a good swift kick in the butt!ReplyDelete
I'm guessing the one on the far right, just because its size doesn't match up with the others...? How fun to have 2 such beautiful WIPs on your design wall.ReplyDelete
I like the idea of adding white space to them, let them breathe a little. And only a year and half old? That's a young WIP right there. :DReplyDelete
What's not to like about little piles of trimmings? I have them all over the house (and sometimes all over me too).ReplyDelete
Ah trimmings... the potpourri of quilters!! The Kona white is going to frame these blocks nicely!ReplyDelete
A full design wall is a happy design wall! :) I love the little picture of the trimmings.ReplyDelete
They may be fiddly, but Herringbone blocks are so pleasing to the eye, at least to mine.ReplyDelete
This looks like fun despite the fiddle nature and yes there is something very satisfying in a pile of trimmings!ReplyDelete
It's coming along :) It will be so pretty when it's finished :)ReplyDelete
The trimmings are fun, but what I'm really interested in is the bowl you have them in! Did you make it? Your quilt is going to be so pretty. My favorite part about the blocks is how the crispy white strips separate the colors.ReplyDelete
Yeah! White space! Great call.ReplyDelete
