I received the first three Fat Eighths yesterday, and got to work on the blocks.
|#1 Gentleman's Fancy|
Lisa sent red fabric, and requested that her block include black and white. I had this black-on-white print and some black solid, and created this block for her.
|#2 Chain of Squares|
Ann sent this yellow Southwestern fabric, and I had just the right accents for it. They probably come from the same line - the teal and purple sun swirls went perfectly with her fabric.
|#3 Castles in Spain|
Linda sent the red tiny floral - which had yellow, green, white and blue. I decided to add a larger yellow & white floral and a blue that matched the blue in the red floral.
Now that I've finished washing all my fabric (that I have to send out), I need to go cut and iron it. Then I have to put it in plastic and then in an envelope, and type the notes I'm sending with it. Tomorrow I'll get it in the mail.
This is really fun because I get to do something different with each piece of fabric. There's no boring repetition. I'm looking forward to seeing what the gals do with mine - I chose (for 27 pieces) a dusty rose, and for the rest a brown that will go with the rose. I did'nt want to go buy fabric just for this; I just wanted to use what I had in my stash.
