WIP Wednesday - More Pattern Testing

Julia @ Jada's Quilting Adventures needed someone to help test a pattern, so I offered to help out.  The pattern is called Additions.

I forgot to take photos during the piecing process, but luckily I remembered before I sewed the blocks together.  Kona Yarrow for the win!!

The pattern calls for 10 fat quarters -- two blocks from each fat quarter.  I had a collection of seven fat quarters, so a couple repeat four times.

The blocks create a secondary pattern.

And once again, I need to decide on a quilting motif.  Why is it so hard to make a decision???

I'm linking up this WIP with:

  1. Well done! I give you an A+ as you have done a wonderful job with these pluses, Anja. Looks like a fun pattern.

  2. I would do a boxy meander; I call it "Robot" in my head. Let me go look for an image that shows the design... has great images / sources of inspiration and you can find the boxy meander there. Good luck choosing!

  3. What a wonderful pattern for showcasing fabrics.

    I agree, figuring out the quilting motif is tough. Lots of my quilts end up as UFOs at this stage for precisely that reason. Can't wait to see what you pick.

  4. Quilting motifs are always the hardest for me to decide on too! Quilting can make or break a quilt, I never want to mess it up! Lol.

  5. It's a great pattern for showcasing fabrics. I love how the colours look in your last photo. Good luck picking a quilting motif.

  6. The colours are wonderful and show up so well in this pattern.

  7. I really like the prints and sashing color you used. An overall boxy meander would be cool or you could treat the sashing to one quilting design and each one of the blocks to a different design (if you wanted something more custom).

  8. Beautiful, Anja! Thanks again for testing out the pattern. I absolutely love the fabrics you picked. I can't wait to see it quilted :)
