One of the fascinating things about the quilt-along is mixing a lot of different fabric / scraps / leftover strings by dividing them in two groups: light and dark. Penny's blocks are great, and tempted me to look through my stash for my light / mostly white fabrics. I soon discovered there wasn't a whole lot of them.... Lots of mediums, few darks, few lights. So I had to make a note to myself to try to balance that in the future!
I was lucky to have some Warm & White 100% cotton batting in my stash, and started playing. Some of my favorite Heather Ross prints and her Munki Munki (deconstructed pajamas parts) soon found their way into the blocks. I used quite colorful fabrics as the darks, and decided to add more white than the original idea. After making some blocks I tried to find more variations of the light / dark compositions.
As you might see, the blocks are not trimmed yet. So far I have made 20 blocks, and are aiming for another ten. I am having fun, using up my few light fabrics, and a lot of thread....
A little warning: this is so much fun it's highly addictive ... Take a look!
