WIP Wednesday #2

Another work in progress (WIP) to show today, my take on a Chic Kisses pattern. And check out that JUMBO apple green ric rac!

Having started out with these wedge parts back in June,

the project got set aside, and each day, it would beg for me to work on it. Yes, I want to work on you but I need more background fabric.

My choice for the background was this adorable print, called Sweet Things Cherries by Holly Holderman for Lakehouse Fabrics. I had bought a half yard back in February for another project, 

and everyone else must have loved it too, because it was nowhere on the shelves. Thank goodness for internet shopping! Ordered two yards, and obstacle 'a' out of the way.

I had also purchased a yard of the ric rac for that other project, and then thought how awesome it would look on the top of the wedges. Works right in with ric rac stems in the background and gives an extra punch!

Ah, but the ric rac was harder to find. At first I thought I would use 30 yards. Yes, you read that right--30! That's a huge amount, and expensive. So I scaled back the project and now it only uses 15. And fortunately, I found it at PIQF this past weekend. Woohoo! Now all obstacles are removed, and the project proceeds!

So, this is where it's at right now. 

with more ric rac and setting triangles to apply. So happy to be working on this again! And it's for me--lovin' those cherries and pink/green combo!

Have a wonderful day quilting!

Linking up at:


  1. I had to laugh when I read that your fabric talks to you too ! Your blocks look great, I like the vibrant colours.

  2. Love the bright colors and that giant ric rac! These blocks are looking good. I am a big Holly Holderman fan, too.

  3. This looks amazing. Although I'm not a "pink" person, I do love the combination of hot pink with black and white, so those wedges get a big thumbs up from me, and that green is just perfect with them. Now I really want to see how it all comes together! :D

  4. Love those fans and adding the ric rac is genius!!!

  5. Love the fabrics and that giant ric rac!


Thank you so much for just made my day!
