WIP Wednesday

These are the first four blocks for my Cherry Christmas Scrappy Trip Along quilt.  I made a beginner's error for one block and put green fabric at either end, so I was left with a double stripe of green.  I'm going to see how it looks once all the other blocks are made - if it's still bugging me then, I'll unpick it.

Cherry Christmas Scrappy Trip Along blocks

I have to say, I am not regretting the decision to hunt these fabrics out - I love working with them and I can't wait to make more blocks.  I'm going to try and finish up a few long-standing WIPs first, but then it's straight back to these lovelies.

Linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced:

These fabrics are gorgeous and I love what you're doing with them. Instead of unpicking maybe work with it. Make another "mistake" or two to balance it out. Truth be told, though, I didn't even notice it at first. :)

I just love scrappy trips! I don't think the double green will even be noticeable once it's all finished!

The trip along blocks are so addictive - this looks really beautiful so far!

I love them! I actually didn't notice until you pointed it out, I doubt it would be very noticeable once the quilt top is done :)
