Batik Paint Chips on WIP Wednesday

I finally got some time in behind my sewing machine and I put together the blocks for my 2nd Paint Chips quilt. I'm loving these batiks!

Again I started with the pattern on the cover of  the Karla Alexander book, Stack, Shuffle and Slide - here it is on Amazon. And again I added lots more piecing, and inserts, and bits and bobs.

This time I even added little pieces to the sashing strips.

Next it needs a narrow plain background border and then I'm going to piece the accent border before finishing it off with a wide background border. My plan is to machine quilt this one myself in a grid pattern that looks like an uneven plaid. I can do it all with my walking foot and that's the kind of machine quilting I do best.

I'm linking up with Freshly Pieced for WIP Wednesday.

Hope your week is going fine - mine seems to be moving quickly - again!

Happy stitching-

carol fun


  1. Look at you - just painting up a storm and turning it into a masterpiece! Your sashing is a great choice - it showcases the blocks perfectly.

  2. I once knew a 20-something that would forget and be running late and would arrive at work with her slippers. She finally left a pair of shoes at work for those days.
    It's not old lady behavior.


  3. Fun fun fun! I can tell you love this version a lot :)


  4. The batiks are looking beautiful!

  5. That's such a pretty quilt. I love the color palette!
