WIP Wednesday: Wiley Way

It's time for the first WIP Wednesday 2014 -- something completely new, I even had to buy fabric (gasp) for it!

I'm sure I shared before that I make a quilt for each of my Mother's great-grandchildren when they turn 12 The next "turning-12" is a big Chicago Bears fan, so his quilt is navy blue and orange.

The pattern is from two Colorado designers, Sassafras Lane Designs. Their designs are named for various streets where they have lived over the years. Wiley Way has a distinctly modern bent, which I thought perfect for Max.

I love this design! It looks tricky, but it's actually really simple!

I'm using various oranges from my stash. The background is Northcott Colorworks Premium Solids in Navy from Ruth's Stitchery. They carry the entire line of this lovely, higherqualitythanKonaCotton fabric.

I'm surprised at how fast it is going together -- I just bought the background fabric on Monday. It would be finished if I hadn't alternated working on this with working on my January UFO project, the 2012 Designer Mystery quilt from Fat Quarter Shop.
