Works in Progress Wednesday #6

Happy Wednesday!

New Projects:
One Thing One Week Challenge - Yes, I signed up for the One Thing One Week Challenge with Amy's Creative Side. I started the lunch bag for my son's teacher Monday night, but need to finish it before Thursday (last day of school) so that is my One Thing.

No more though, too many projects on the go! But I really do want to do a Canada Day banner similar to Riel's at the Q and the U and Canada Day is coming up so there might be one more. But no more after that until I finish more projects!

Completed Projects: Nada

Current Projects:
Bottled Rainbows (2) - I pieced the Patrick's blocks this week. We're going to do quilt-as-you-go on these ones. I've never done quilt-as-you-go before so I'm keen to learn this technique, as well as the ticker tape technique. Daniel has chosen his backings, which coordinate with his block colours so we will hopefully have a bit of a bottled rainbow on the back as well. Patrick finishes school on Thursday so we'll choose his backings on Friday. This may be a bit too ambitious, but I'm hoping that we can do one block a day so that I can do the sashing on the back and the binding by hand when we go out East at the end of July. Fingers crossed!

Project Y - Good progress on this one, except on a name. I finished piecing the blocks on the front and most of the ones for the back. I also figured out the layout that I'd like.

Now to figure out the colour layout for the rest of the top. I'm sure there are more proper words for how I've arranged the colours on the samples below, but I don't know what they are. So I'm naming them with what works for me. The pink and magenta scanned much closer in colour and value than they are on the originals.

Option 1 - Cascading

Option 2 - Radiating Outward

Option 3 - Modified Radiating Outward

Option 4 - Random

What do you think? I'd love any comments or suggestions.

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced


  1. Hey M-R,

    For what it's worth, I like the random one - it feels more vibrant than the Radiating Outward (but I have absolutely no vision for how anything - painting, renovations, sewing...etc. will look!).

  2. Looking good! I like option 2.

  3. Those are great blocks! I like the option 2 as well, but I am sure which ever you pick will look great.

  4. I also like Option 2 and I think it's pretty cool how you drew out your options and posted them. :)

  5. LOL I guess #2 is it,eh....thanks for your nice comment....

  6. very nice blocks.I like all of the, I guess I am not much help.

  7. Your sketches are so pretty! You should frame them! I like Option 1 or Option 4, personally, but they would all be lovely.

  8. I like radiating outward. :) LOVE those blocks!

  9. SEW modern! Awesome colors and placement.
