Yesterday I sewed scraps on my sewing table into wonky log cabin blocks,
using blue squares and following a loose blue/pink colour scheme.
It's the beginning of something, and the blocks sewn together
measure 18 by 21 inches.
Maybe a baby quilt?
So I auditioned some fabrics, using this pink/red dot as the first try.
Not bad, but not quite there.
Then a pink text print, which doesn't add anything to the centre,
but it's one of the few pink pieces of yardage I have in my stash.
How about the blue toile?
Maybe a bit better, but still washed out, especially compared
to the saturated colours in the Kaffe scraps in the blocks.
Lime green does the trick, but this is supposed to be the backing fabric
for my orange to blue colourwash string quilt.
See how pretty the green (grass) looks with it?
I've sewn it together and it measures about 48 by 60.
So what if the log cabin centre is bordered with green
to make the back of the colourwash quilt?
Nothing like a some natural light and a digital camera
to figure out a design problem.
