From K - Wax print WiP

I don't know about you, but I'm 100% gold star motivated (come on admit it, you love those stickers too!). But honestly I'm extremely goal orientated and nothing brightens my day more than checking off another WiP from my 'to sew list'. Today I'm happy to share that I finished my second wax print quilt top, which is one step closer to quilting them both!
Since daylight hours are fleeting now that it's winter, and I didn't have enough time to leave town to find a pretty barn, a rustic fence will have to be the next best thing for today's photo shoot.
To create this quilt top, I made six 8.5" wide columns, cutting my scraps into various heights. To finish the columns off, I added 1.75" sashing to separate the blocks.
I knew I wanted the sashing to act like a frame around each column and tested out a couple options before settling on black. What separated it from the other options was that it allowed the wax prints to take center stage, keeping the colours bright, and not distracting your eye from the real focal point.
If you're interested in checking out my first wax print quilt top, you can check it out here. I'm really excited to quilt both of my wax print tops in the near future.
In the meantime, I thought I'd leave you with a little shot of my helper today. Oh how I love this face.
