WIP Wednesday


 

 

I've been experimenting with my Sugar Loaf block lately. First of all I tried setting it at a slight angle. I made the two blocks at the top before giving up on that idea. Maybe I'll come back to it or maybe not. Sometimes I try something new and I just don't love it as much as I thought I would, this was one of those times!
 
My next idea was to go all solid. I've never made an all solids quilt before so it feels quite adventurous! The blocks above were made with charms from a Denyse Schmidt Designer Solids charm pack. I'm still debating the background colour, my original plan was to use a variety of white/off-white fabrics but now I've started, I think it will work better with just one colour. I'm much happier with this plan and I'm looking forward to working my way through the 75 colours in the charm pack. This will be another slow burner project, it was a fun diversion from my to-do list but I should probably get back to it now!

  1. These all look quite cute. It feels good when you are happy with your decision, then the happy making can continue.

  2. It feels strange to put a triangle at an angle, doesn’t it? Love your solid blocks!
    I’ve finished my (secret) Oakshott pillow cover top. I need to think about the quilting now, maybe some circles will look good ;-)
