WIP Math: 9-2=11

One of my goals for the summer was to finish as many WIPs as I could. I had a list of nine and I've already completed two. But then I got sidetracked by the idea of this:

Black and white is hard to photograph! You can't really tell but in the photo above, the bottom right X is actually a very light blue, just a tad of subtle color.


As you can imagine, this quilt became boring to piece very quickly so I had to stop every once in a while and work on other things. But instead of going back to my list of seven remaining WIPs, I started three new ones. Of course I did.

Apparently I'm not through with black and white X-es. This one will be a bit different, though, with each block having a different black and white print. 

Then I moved on to my new mini charm (candy) pack of High Street that I recently acquired from my LQS. I've said before that I'm usually several months to several years behind on noticing and/or buying new fabric lines, and this is one of those times. Love this new-to-me line and hope to get some yardage soon!

And for the final product of my distraction from the X quilt, I grabbed a little stack of fabric that was peeking out at me from my cabinet and put this Broken Wheel block together. I thought it was perfect for the center print as it looks just like those little gears.

 So now my WIP list is up to eleven. I never was good at sticking to a plan:/ 

Linking up to Freshly Pieced for her WIP Wednesday.

I've had X's on my mind lately, too, but I'm thinking 30s fabric for the X's. I look forward to seeing how you quilt this one!

I am working on knocking my second one off the list. I know what you mean about the boredom. I have a couple of those. Good luck on your list.

You & I must have learned our math from the same teacher. I love, love, love the gray & orange gear block.
