WIP Wednesday

Pin It

I finished all the cross blocks for my Old + New quilt last night.  After taking this picture I felt that I was missing some darker colors so the final blocks I made were either purple or grey.  I highly recommend taking a picture of your quilt in progress if you are having trouble with the layout.  There's something about seeing your quilt in a photo as opposed to right there in front of you...

I'm really excited about completing this quilt top tonight.  I love how it's coming together.  Everything about this quilt is different for me... the colors, the liberated style, the different sized blocks... it's been a real growth experience for me. :)

Sorry for the horrible picture...  I sew at night mostly and so the light obviously isn't good.  I promise to take some good pictures of the final top after it's sewn together!

The colors are great. And that is really good advice about taking a picture during progress. Did you start with vintage sheets and then expand the colors from that?

Cindy, good question... yes, I started with purple and yellow vintage sheets and went from there. It was amazing how quickly I began to notice all the beautiful purple and yellow fabrics out there that I never noticed before!

That's a great look, I love your choice of fabrics. I do not have an art background and I sometimes have trouble with value but you have done a great job with your choices.

Boy, that's going to be a cool quilt! I've long been a fan of the camera method for laying out quilts -- it's saved me a few times!!!

It's looking so great! I need to get crackin' on my cross blocks!
