WIP Wednesday: Seismic

Ok, so no awards for my photography tonight.  I am worn out! These are my blocks from the Stash Bee up on the design wall.  There is one more column of blocks which won't fit on the wall; it goes to the right of these.  This is going to be large quilt.  On the order of 80" square all told.  Many thanks to my bee members who sent so many great blocks!  I've decided to name it Seismic Waves.

I am conflicted about the sashing on these...  I though golden yellow was going to be the right choice for uniting all the different blocks, but it looks awfully cheddar.  I think I am going to cap the columns off and border the whole thing in a really nice dark blue to hopefully chill it out.  We'll see if that works.  Any suggestions? Any one?

Linking up to WIP Wednesday, check it out!


  1. A suggestion for your sashing: Instead of just one fabric, why not take a variety of plain, rather dark fabrics? It would be less static.
    Great work!

  2. I can see it with a dark fabric letting the blocks really pop. It's going to be great.

  3. I would go for black sashing and use that yellow for the binding. I love the name, by the way.
