WIP Wednesday, 4/20/22

 Progress was made this week on a couple of things.

I'm still caught up on both blocks of the week.

This is Block 13 of the Riley Blake Designs challenge 2022, Double Cross, designed by Sue Daley.

And Block 5 of the Block Heads 4 by Moda Fabrics, Two of Five, designed by Barbara Groves of Me & My Sister Designs. I always find this interesting as I'm sure it is just a new name for an old block. But it was nice to have a block that went together so quickly.

I worked for several days on Jettstream 2.0, the version with all-black center squares.

These were two of my favorite blocks out of the 20 new ones.

Then came the hardest part for me, even though I enjoy it--trying to place the blocks in such a way that the same colors aren't too close together. It's a toss up sometimes.

 You fix one problem but create three more problems. I'm willing to move things around once or twice, and then I just leave it alone.

I'm happy with this version. I have a wild and crazy idea for the first version.

Now to get busy and write up the pattern...

You sure have lots of fun things on your wall to choose from. I know what you mean about moving things around. Solving one problem area often creates a new problem or two....or three. After awhile it just gets to be too too much fusing. Just went through the same thing with a quilt on my design wall. Finally called it good and started sewing.

Have you given up on the perfect pineapple quilt right now? I just got caught up again. I seem to do that. Fall behind, get caught up. Progress is being made, though. Your two quilts are looking good. I really love the fabrics you are using in the Riley Blake challenge.

Oh my goodness! I don't think I could keep up with multiple, simultaneous BOMs. Wow. I already have the hopping syndrome (going from project to project), but doing so under obligation, even self-imposed obligation, is a recipe for failure for me. It sounds like you're enjoying yourself though, and that's the most important thing. Like Charlotte M. said (above), that "perfect pineapple" quilt shouldn't languish. It's the prettiest one you're making.
