Splash of Colour Progress

I am loving how my Splash of Colour project is looking. The little pop of green adds the wow factor. The Splash of Colour QAL is being run by Myra @ Busy Hands.  You can read more about my pattern choice here.

paper pieced units

I have had to fit this project in with other projects I'm working on. There were 16 of the white with black and white paper pieced units. I use freezer paper to do my paper piecing, no papers to rip off after. The black with white dots is a Cotton & Steele print, I only had a FQ and am now wishing I had more as I would have liked to use it as the binding.

one of 4 sections pieced
After piecing the sections I ran into a small snag. I didn't have enough of the white on white print background fabric. I knew I wanted white for the corner pieces. Not all whites are created equal and I finally decided a solid would be my best bet. I pulled out some Kona snow and think once I get the quilting done it will be a good fit.

Kona corners added although they are hard to see in this photo trust me they are there
Next big decision how to quilt it. At this point I don't have a clue as how I'm going to quilt it.

  4. That is one awesome piece! And I, too, am a big fan of freezer paper piecing. So much easier! Thanks for sharing on Midweek Makers 100, and I look forward to seeing this finished.

  5. This is beautiful! The pops of green with the black and white fabrics...just wow! I could see some great dot to dot quilting in all those compass points, but what ever you decide to do it will be great.

  10. Cindy, this is just GORGEOUS!! Your piecing is exquisite (I pp the same way, ha, I don't mean exquisitely, but with freezer paper! LOL chuckling at my own unintended joke) Anyhoo...I like Tish's dot to dot suggestion, ooh, maybe extending the points à la ghost quilting? I'm still making more blocks on mine, (eye roll) but like you I'm fitting it in amongst other projects.
