WIP Wednesday: Right On Time


WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced
It’s Wednesday. And I actually know that it’s Wednesday. Let’s do this thing.

Did I mention I’m making another Crazytown quilt? Well, kind of sort of. I’m getting a pattern ready, and it’s going to have two design variations for you all. So I’m being a good little designer and making both versions.

I don’t make a lot of all-one-fabric-line quilts these days, but I’ll always make an exception for Denyse Schmidt’s collections. For some reason I just can’t break up her lines. The prints are so yummy together—introducing fabric from other designers or other collections never seems to improve them.

I tried adding other prints to this quilt, I really did. But Florence is just so darn awesome all on its own. So this quilt will be Florence and only Florence. Because Florence is the bomb. It reminds me of my grandpa’s old ties or something.

This week’s WIP Wednesday is sponsored by Pink Chalk. One of the things I really love about Pink Chalk is that they’re always available to give you color and fabric matching advice by phone or email. And their “What Goes With What?” series might be one of the most useful features I’ve seen on a store blog. They list coordinating solids for popular new fabric lines, complete with real-life pictures of the bolts of fabric stacked up with their matching solids. Somehow it just makes it feel like you’re in a brick-and-mortar fabric store.

Pink Chalk is kindly offering a $25 gift certificate for one lucky WIP winner! Same deal as last week: Link up for a chance to win, comment on this post for a chance to win, or do both for two chances. I’ll draw a winner on Friday. Last week’s winner of the $25 gift certificate to Intrepid Thread was Cindi at Falling Into Quilts. Congrats, Cindi! : )

So what are you working on this week? Here are the linky rules:
1. Link up any post from the past week that features an unfinished work-in-progress (WIP).
2. Somewhere in your post, you must link back here to my blog.
3. Comment on at least a few of the other WIP Wednesday links—commenting on the two or three links directly before yours works well to make sure everyone gets comments!

    I like the crazy town block. I am wondering what it would look like if the block was enlarged to about 36" square to make a baby quilt!
    Sorry, I don't have a blog to link for you.
    Thanks for the giveaway, I love the Pink Chalk store!

    Oh, I can't wait for this pattern to be ready ~ I just love it! It would be great for a medallion quilt ~ I've got them on my mind lately ~ doing two. One with my guild (PMQG) and one with the Patchwork Society at Modern Domestic.
    Thanks for the giveaway!

    Ooh! Love these giveaways ;o) Sadly I've been trying to catch up on hours for work lately (#polarvortex=billablehourFAIL) but I'm hoping to be able to get some reacquainted with my sewing machine once Feb 1 rolls around 😀

    I have to agree, Florence is great all on it's own. I just got a fat quarter bundle of it and I'm pretty sure I start drooling every time I look at it. Your quilt is looks great!
