WIP Wednesday 7/18/2012

Every Seven Minutes Quilt - Laid out on design wall

I had been having a hard time getting back to work on Every Seven Minutes, a wallhanging inspired by the San Diego Trolley. I had made the scrappy strip sets seen below, but I wasn't happy about them.

Strip sets - original collection
Wasn't thrilled about these

I came up with the idea of going back to the palette in the Electric Quilt sketch, below.

Every Seven Minutes - Electric Quilt sketch

Fabrics chosen for the new strip sets - green is new but the rest are from stash/scraps

Strips sewn together, ready to cut

First four strip sets in the new palette
The colors make me happy!

All 16 strip sets

Calculating side and corner triangles for on-point layout

Red squares and triangles placed on design wall

Bright blue squares and triangles added
I like the graphic look.

It's good to be quilting again. This Saturday is the Sacramento Modern Quilt Guild meeting. I'd like to have a finished quilt to share at the meeting. At the very least I'll be able to bring the assembled quilt top.



  1. This is such a cool quilt design! The color scheme is so pleasing to the eye. Thank you for linking up to WIP Wednesday!

  2. Wow that is very pretty and bold! Great work!
