WIP Wednesday


last week i really struggled with a layout for a quilt using my embroiderbee blocks (8) and color coordinating drunk love blocks (14). i finally settled on the following plan: to stitch up a couple more drunk love blocks, then assemble the drunk loves in a 4 x 4 layout. i'll use this for the back of the quilt. 

for the front, i'm going to randomly arrange the embroiderbee blocks, then fill in the blank space with a solid medium to light grey. 

the great thing about this plan is that a) i didn't have to make a bazillion more blocks, just two, b) the two new blocks were made easily from my scrap stash, c) i already have the grey broadcloth i'll use, and d) i'm almost certain i have some purple print i can use as the binding!

the quilt should finish at 48" square, and i think i'll pebble quilt it, leaving the embroidered portions unquilted since they're not very large.

I like your plan! I'm glad you figured out a good way to use both sets of blocks. If you don't have purple for the binding, I probably have something I can share! But I bet you do. ;)

Lu-u-u-uve the purple & gray! Eager to see the embroidered blocks. Two great finishes in the chute!

The purple and grey together are so calming. Very pretty, can't wait to see it complete!
