WIP Wednesday: It’s All Greek

IMG_0438-1

Happy Wednesday again! My week has been all about my Greek Key quilt for my upcoming quilt-along on We All Sew.

My plan is for almost the entirety of this quilt to be white and dark gray—but I’m doing one block in some other color. I sewed one up in this yellow print, but now I’m on the fence about this particular shade of yellow. So we’ll see if this block makes it into the finished product. : ) I’m glad there’s only one, so it will be an easy re-do if it comes to that!

This week’s WIP Wednesday is sponsored by Shabby Fabrics!

Shabby Fabrics is kicking off an exclusive Block-of-the-Month for 2016 called Garden Thyme—an original Shabby Fabrics design that features simple piecing, appliqué, and English paper-piecing without hand-sewing(!). You can choose a traditional appliqué kit, or you can get it with laser-cut, pre-fused appliqué shapes for even more convenience. It’s perfect if you’re looking for a BOM for the new year with a good variety of designs and techniques! And Shabby has many other BOM programs as well, so check them all out right here.

    Very nice! Looking forward to this pattern. Aren't Greek keys traditionally done in blue? Maybe that would fit your vision a bit better than the yellow. Either way, it will be spectacular!

    I don't know why, but yellow is the hardest color to work with – so many times it leans towards a gold when you want a sunny yellow or vice versa. I find that when I search my stacks of fabric for yellows I always come up empty. Lovin your block.

    It is amazing how a fabric color can throw us into doubt for whatever reason. I appreciate your attitude that it will not be hard to redo the block and go from there. I know that is how I have ended up with many of my lonely blocks that lay waiting for sometimes years before I decide they are right for a different project. Thank you for sharing and the opportunity to win this great prize. Have a wonderful creative day!

    I have that yellow fabric from the Utopia line by Francis Newcombe for Art Gallery Fabrics as well as some dark gray Bella Solids, so I could totally make the same Greek Key block, which I want to do! Guess I'll just have to check out the Quilt Along!

    I really like the yellow, but I don't know that I would want a whole quilt with it. I don't have a lot of yellow in my stash, so it must be a color I don't like a lot!
