I am working my way backwards & forwards, trying to use fabric that will go together, or at least has gone together in quilts past, all with a vague idea of making a strange sort of sampler quilt at some pount. & vague seems to be just the right word.
First "thats my baby" which is a great big yawn. Even in person. I did not have much of either the gold or the purple to do much & thought this would be an ideal spot. The overall effect is uhmmmm restful *yawn*. The squares were kind of small, but not a difficult block in my view. If I were going to make it it 'in real life' I think I would use many random scraps for the little squares.
For every block forward I (hope, try) make a block going backwards & this is "cross in a cross". I was not looking forward to it as sewing bias edges puts me off, but I actually kind of enjoyed this one. These colors look just as dull as the others (one is indeed in the other) but it has more snap in person. I would make this block again, have already started thinking of other tone-on-tone scrap combos sitting in the scrap basket.
