|two test blocks|
Following the colour of the month, which is blue with optional accents of purple, I used a variety of 2" blue squares that I pulled from my precut bins. I also pulled 2" strips of blue from my strip bins and cut some of them into squares to add more variety.
The blocks that Angela shared were framed with black and white prints and I thought they looked fantastic. I dug through my stash and found a black/white and a white/black fabric that I liked together. I have less of the dot fabric but I think I will have enough for more than 50 blocks so I figure by the end of the year I should have at least 100 blocks for a fun quilt.
I made 15 blue nine patches and I have plenty more scrappy bits to make more if I need to. I didn't frame them all with the black and white prints because, at this point, I just don't know how many I will need.
Wow...doesn't that frame of black and white prints dress up those blocks!!!
After taking the photos and looking at the dot fabric closely I am wondering if it is navy blue and not black. Whatever it is I am going with it and maybe some day, many years from now, someone will be looking at my quilt and they will be saying.....oh....poor thing....she thought the blue was black. :)
