This is why I like scraps so much :)
Here's a page I made tonight for another baby soft "colour" book --- I used a Carol Doak crazy block pattern to get the centre motif - I thought it was rather appropriate for a baby book! Then I thought ... hmmmmmm ... cute to put a heart in the block, but what if ... what if ... what if I put an INITIAL in another block??!?!?!?! I'm going to try to draft something up to see if I can get this to work - I think it's a brilliant idea, if I may be so unhumble for a moment!
Angela - here's the pink string quilt I'm working on - these are 9" (finished) blocks, and the blocks will be set 6 x 8, for a finished size of 54 x 72. I have 24 blocks done, so I'm halfway finished. I need to find some more pink scraps - I'm running out of prints, lol!
These types of blocks are my favorites to make - they're unplanned, random, wonky, scrap-hungry pieces of eye candy - not to all, I'm sure, but certainly to ME! ;)
