Splash of Colour QAL

I wasn't going to participate in any QAL's as I just have too much going on at this time. Unfortunately my will power wasn't strong enough to resist this one. Who can resist black and white with a splash of colour anyway. Not me! The Splash of Colour QAL is being run by Myra @ Busy Hands.

I have a nice collection of black and white fat quarters that have been begging to be used in a project. Instead of just telling them to quiet down I crumbled.

some black and whites pulled with a splash of colour

I pulled some of those fat quarters out, for the splash of colour I pulled some batiks out. Now the big decision... What pattern was I going to make? 
I opened EQ7 and started playing around, next thing I knew I had three possibilities. Now to narrow it down to one.

Let's see what they were.

number 1 made with hst's. Not bad if I don't say so myself

Next up
number 2. I like the QST's and strips.
Last one

number 3 I have had a compass on my to do list for awhile

A decision was finally reached! Thankfully I only drew up three. I have decided to make number 3, the compass. 

Have you ever felt like you can't take on any more and then you get pulled in for another project? I know I can't be the only one.


  1. The compass really jumped out at me, too! I look forward to seeing it come together for you.

  2. Ha YEAH! Both on the getting pulled in for one more project and on the choice to do the compass!!! Love that lime green hit! Good for you for tackling what most would feel too daunting. ;-)

  3. I think I suffer from FOMO -- fear of missing out. LOL At least this QAL is allowing me to make a pattern I've wanted to make for some time. I was going to say #1...until I saw #3. Great choice!

  4. Ooh, I'm so glad you chose number 3 - it was my fav too! It's going to look stunning and I can't wait to see your progress.

  5. The compass is perfect for this challenge. I love the mock up you have put together!!! I think we all know I get sucked into projects way to easily :)

  6. Happens to me all the time , I'm a joiner

  7. Your compass will look amazing! So glad you're joining us in the QAL.

  8. Excellent choice, Cindy. It would be fantastic. It is also the most challenging but I have full faith in you!!!

  9. Oh, no, I have never been pulled into a new project when I'm already too busy. (just kidding!) All three of your ideas are great! I think you should make one of each. lol


I love comments, however if you don't get a reply back from me it is because you may be a no-reply blogger. Hope you have a great day!
