WIP Wednesday - more #munchkinland

Pin It
WIP #munchkinland

Even though I still haven't got all the fabric put away that I pulled to make this quilt top, I love it. LOVE it.

After sending Chelsa her Scrappy Sprouts, I knew I needed my own rainbow quilt with low volume background prints and an insane number of pretty squares in a spectrum.  I had many of the squares already cut (intended to become granny squares), but after seeing a gajillion granny square quilts, I didn't want to finish mine any more.  I wanted to do an Arkansas (or is it Alabama) cross-roads.

And here she is. I call her #munchkinland. Because it reminded me of Wizard of Oz.

Just needs another border I think. Got any ideas?
Right now I'm leaning towards rainbow patchwork, and then more low volume? Good???

(Free patterns for this quilt can be found here and here)

It is looking so nice especially the colorful blocks are looking more attractive.

fabulous quilt - I love the rainbow with the low volume with the black - perfect! I'm not sure that it needs a border, unless you want to make it larger?

Fantastic Tracey... Though I secretly am breathing deeply to remain calm. I just finished cutting fabric for your Roundhouse quilt and now you're tempting me with another fabulous quilt. Must stay focused, must stay focused, must stay focused ;) no seriously, the setting is perfect!

Love the rainbow/low volume combo!

Carla said...

I adore it! However am I going to pull off Roundhouse and now this one with all the myriad of other quilts in the works? They are both so beautiful!
