Then I looked at my polychrome prints on black:
Next I branched out into other blocks. First, a 12" Sawtooth Star:
And then I tried out a Color Wheel block. I'm really happy with it!
The center patch is from a Project Runway print. Are you watching the new season? I've been hooked since season one.
I'm linking up with the other RSC bloggers over at SoScrappy.By the way, Jean over at Layers of Hope - Quilting 911 has put out a call for quilts for those whose homes have burned to the ground in central Washington. It will be a while before quilts can be delivered so you've got time to begin putting one together if you are so inclined. The need will no doubt be for adult size quilts. She seems to generally have a surplus of children's quilts. Anything from a comfort quilt (about 60 x 80") to one that will cover a bed will be welcome. Knitters and those who crochet are also invited to make and donate afghans. Money is always a welcome donation! Jean and her family support this effort out of their own pockets for the most part. We even have a fire threatening two small communities on our side of the mountains. I've had to close my windows due to poor air quality. I don't know whether the fires are at fault but it's a possibility. Fortunately our temps have come down somewhat so I'm not terribly uncomfortable. I may be trapped in the house but I can still make blocks and quilts!
