WIP Wednesday

I decided to dig into the multicolored scraps and my *Shout Color Catchers* I have been saving. Here's what I came up with today. If asked, I would tell you that my stash is seriously low on pink! They all seem to be in the scrap pile! lol

I'm using this pattern String X as my inspiration. My foundation is a bit smaller so I am trimming to 4.5 in x 9.5 in. I am cutting my black setting squares/triangles at 4.75 inches then slicing on the diagonal. Once all that is sewn then I am trimming my blocks to 6.5 inches. My finished blocks will be 6 inches. I think this is going to wonk out as I don't think my black setting triangles will all line up. :)

I also mailed out my FAB Birthday Giftie. Parcel Post~should reach the Birthday Girl by April 27th~her Birthday! Will reveal that secret project once the Birthday Girl has opened her gifties! :)

Congrats on the finish! I might have tried to sew if the weather had cooperated---color me lagging, LOL.

I love the top you are working on! Boy, those color really pop agsinst the black!

The way to get this look without worrying about lining up those stinkin' triangles a large square of black and string pieced bands. Then you either do a plain corner stone or make that piece be a small hour glass unit. The whole thing goes on point----RR Crossing. Something to think about!

I thought I had a picture of one that I pieced the bands on instead of doing the pseudo version with a striped fabric but can't find it now. But it works!

Looking good. My Easy Spider Web blocks used up the last of my scrap basket! Woo hoo! Doesn't it feel good to be using up your scraps?? Great quilt.
