My first kick at the can...


You may remember that I started with an odd assortment of blocks that were given to me as part of a birthday block exchange.  I decided to first cut them into equal strips.



And then chose some additions from my scrap stash in the same two inch widths.



I fussed with the layout until I found something I was happy with...





And then sewed them all together.

Normally, I would stop here; this is my comfort zone and what pleases me aesthetically: a limited palette and not a lot of pattern in my fabrics - but since were "what if"-ing - I didn't!

Stay tuned...

  2. Kit, this is awesome! I love what you did with those blocks and the palette is perfect. I'm looking at my blocks and maybe later will get out the scalpel to go on with the tutoriial. Although I'm not sure anybody really needs one!
