WIP WEDNESDAY #8

fall project WIP by you.
Its really been awhile since I did a WIP WED post. I saw Faiths great Fall quilt top and was so inspired! Really pretty and beautiful. I am going to have some dental work done tomorrow and have been having quite a bit of anxiety brewing up and needed to keep my mind occupied. I am the kind of patient that needs lots of drugs to get and stay in the chair. Seriously bad patient. To distract myself I decided to work on a tut I have been working on in my head. It's up there swimming around and I need to get it out but I also need a sample.
First step:
I started pulling fabric like a crazy woman.

These are my final choices.
Step Two:
I cut 3" strips of the colors or coins and 2.5 inch strips of the background.
when I did the math I figured out I needed twice as much background as colors.
I used 20" of color and 40" background for each block.

I'm going to put a tutorial on Flickr of the steps needed to make the blocks and put together. But it's not finished yet.. so a couple more days...
see you next week!

Great fabric choices! I love orange. And I am totally with you re: the dentist, sister! I know exactly what you're going through. Even the most minor cleaning makes my blood pressure go through the roof. I listen to my iPod so loud I know I'm courting hearing loss, but at least I can't hear the whirring and whining of those stupid machines! Hang in there - it really is for the best, and it will be over soon!
