Back in April I told you about a fabulous method to sew two triangles together and cut them in a specific way to yield 1 large HST and 5 little 5 HST. Then came the fun bit to play with all the possible arrangements. Truly good fun for a 9 year old daughter. :o)
After auditioning the very many settings, DD2 and I settled on this one. As I had so many different colours and so many variations of “light” and “dark”, I opted to pool the colours together thus giving the eye a definite shape to see.
To finish I added a fine floral print border. I felt that the range of colours in the border would compliment the variety of colours but would still “read” as a solid. Had I gone for a red border then the red blocks would have dominated as would the blue blocks had I used a blue border.
My plan is to quilt it and finish it for Project Linus. I haven’t decided what pattern to use, so if you have any suggestions please leave me a comment :o)
Until next time....
