WIP Wednesday

Late last year, I bought a fat quarter bundle of Alison Glass's wonderful collection, Clover Sunshine.  I happened to set it down next to a bundle of Oakshott Italy fabrics, and I realised that they are both quite greyed out and I thought they would look interesting together.

Wonky Crosses

I've started making these wonky cross blocks and I love them (I still need to square them up).  I haven't decided exactly what I'm going to do with these blocks.  Of course, I could just stitch them together to make a very bright and vibrant quilt.  Sashing, or negative space so it looks like they're floating is another option.

What are you working on this week?

Every time I see your cross blocks I think how striking they are. Well done!

I love this line so much and your blocks do a great job of showing off the pretty fabric! I am looking forward to seeing what you do with them!

Michelle Bartholomew said...

I love the colors in this! Can't wait to see how you put it all together.

Lovely! I've never seen that fabric line before, but I'll be looking for it now. In terms of putting them together, I'd be tempted to use some of the fabrics from the crosses to create areas for the blocks to float in. The prints are so vibrant, I would want them to stand out. But that's just me! ☺

Lovely cross blocks!

Sarah @ sarahquilts.com said...

Oh yeah, that happens to me a lot actually! Put fabric too close together and it practically sews itself. :)
