WIP Wednesday

Disappearing 9-patch blocks

Here's what I'm working on this week!

I dredged up these disappearing 9-patch blocks. I bought two charm packs of this line (I don't remember what it's called) about 4 years ago. I pieced them two years ago and I thought "Yowza!" They are a bit out there. I'm going to tame them with a little black sashing and go from there. They are growing on me again.

(And yes, that's my total Type B design wall - a flannel back tablecloth with holes cut into the top and 3M hangers. That's a $5 deal right there!)

I also have a Moda Hoopla jelly roll and this Star Burst print from Prints Charming for backing, which goes perfectly with this line. I'm pairing the jelly roll with Kona White. I haven't decided on the pattern yet. Possibly something from one of the Lintott books - Jelly Roll Quilts or Layer Cake, Jelly Roll and Charm Quilts

Or the ever reliable Moda Bake Shop. Possibly Avignon Picnic, Random Reflections or Lawn Chair Quilts. Hideaway Girl has a great quilt HERE that would be great in Hoopla.

It's a playful line, so I want a playful pattern. 

As for my Sugar Pop quilt, it has undergone quite a transformation. I have never ripped out more stitches on a project than on this one. I can already see where I should have made a small tweak, but I decided to just move ahead with it and it's turned out ok.
