I'm currently between projects, and have been looking at some of the fabric I have, thinking about where to go next. I bought this piece of fabric several years ago. It shades from lemon yellow to a rosy peach and back to yellow again, all the while blending different sizes and shapes of dots. There should be a way to really show this off, but I have trouble visualizing how. (I have lots of it.) I've started making these simple blocks, thinking about shading the backgrounds according to where on the fabric I cut the pieces.
Although I like the colors, this idea doesn't seem interesting enough for that great fabric. I may make a few more blocks to see what develops. If nothing else, I'll have a start on what could be a pretty, small quilt for a baby, and there's more of the fabric for something else.
