WIP Wednesday: Borderline

So WIP Wednesday is a THIIING apparently so I guess I might play along.  WIP Wednesday.  Maybe not every Wednesday.  I like UFO better than WIP, but I suppose there is a slight distinction there. 

So today I decided a panel looked sad and lonely and needed to have something made from it.  It's a black and white panel of 28 different blocks.  I neglected to take a picture of the panel before I cut it up.  Oops. 

But lemme tell ya.  Not all panels are created equal.  I love these blocks but HOLY CRAP IT COULD NOT HAVE BEEN PRINTED ANY MORE CROOKEDLY.

Pre-trimming crookedness. That's not even the worst one.  That's just one. was pretty bad.  But the blocks are still cute anyway.  I ended up having to trim them all to 5.5" to get them all the same size.  

 They were so crooked, they turned out pretty wonky.  Wonky blocks for a wonky girl.  That'll do.

But I decided to put the black blocks with turquoise and the white blocks with blue.  For someone who doesn't generally like blue....I sure am making a lot of blue quilts lately.  But it looks neat, I think.  There's no pattern, I just bordered each block.  Doesn't really warrant a pattern.

All I need to do is assemble the rows and get the quilt put together.  The wonkiness seems less pronounced to me know that that blocks are finished.  They're still weird but I don't feel like they're glaringly so anymore. 


  1. I really like what you did with this!

  2. Love the blues against the black and white! Love how they are just a little bit wonky! :)

    Would love for you to stop by tomorrow and link this up to Fabric Frenzy Friday!

    1. Thanks Lindsey! I think sometimes a little wonkiness turns out to be a good thing :-) I will be sure to link this up tomorrow, thank you for the invite!
