New WIP with Pips!

Ok ok... I know I'm not supposed to be starting anything new but when I saw this on Sew Mama Sew's tutorial section, I just could not resist!


I have a layer cake of these Sherbet Pips from Moda and I'm thinking 12 of these blocks with the light grey sashing in between would make a beautiful blanket. Alternating between the scooters, swings, and puppy print for the center blocks - using all the colorways. Love it! Definitely a very "me" blanket... especially with the puppies and snails following along behind her :)

... one more WIP for the pile *sigh*

Happy Memorial Day everyone!

This is a really cute block! I think a whole quilt of it will look great.

I love seeing what everyone is doing with the Sherbet Pips. Yours is darling. I have two mini charm packs I won but all the kids were cut in half and none of the scooter kids have heads. You'd think those companies would fussy cut those things, huh?

Mitzi said...

I love what you're doing with the Pips. I like it best when the little girls are fussy cut and surrounded by the other fabrics - just like you have done! Love it!
