Curiousity gets me in trouble on WIP Wednesday

Oh, it starts out so innocently. A couple of blocks on someone else's blog (I'm talking about you Kathy - you can see her blocks here.) And then there is a pack of charm squares conveniently perched on the corner of your cutting table and your curiosity kicks in and before you know it BAM!!! You've started another project. Honestly it wasn't planned, I just had to see how that disappearing 4 patch would look!

Now this is an old line of fabric called Modern Workshop by Oliver + S. I'd say it was released about 3 years ago (hey that is old in fabric years - LOL!) Anyway I picked up a couple of charm packs of this super cheap a week or so ago. I wish I had paid more attention to this line when it first came out. I like it a lot. This is going to be a small quilt since I only have 2 full charm packs and a part of another pack. Doing these 9 blocks showed be the importance of picking 2 fabrics that have good contrast.

See how the two yellow blocks aren't as crisp as the other two? I went matchy matchy when I picked the squares. The colors are pretty but it makes a better block IMHO when there is more contrast.

I'm linking up with Freshly Pieced WIP Wednesday. You can see it here - go check out all the awesome projects other are working on.

Happy stitching-
carol fun


  1. Happens to me all the time! :-( LOL

  2. Being easily distracted isn't such a bad thing :)
    I kind of like the low volume blocks. You'll have enough that are noisier :)

  3. I love that you accidentally started a new project. I have SO many projects in progress and probably won't even finish one before I start three more. :-) I'm feeling inspired to do a disappearing 4-patch. Very cute!

  4. Very fun. IMHO you are right about the placement of color.


Thanks for stopping by. I really enjoy reading your comments. They make my day!
