Another One in the Works
Here is what I have been doing the last couple of days. It is all from scraps using a pattern from Karen Alexander's book, Stack a New Deck. Super easy to do but I did manage to cut a couple of the stacks wrong. One mistake equals eight mistakes because you are cutting a pile of eight. The good thing about using scraps is that you can use the mistakes somewhere else.
I probably should have spent a bit more time arranging the blocks. There is a bit of a light area and the top right corner has a couple of blocks the same too close together.
I still like the scrappy look of it and because the fabrics are all kind of old it has an old fashioned flowery look that I like. I am thinking of a fairly wide border in the navy blue the same as the setting triangles. I was going to put a light inner border but I think I like the sawtooth look by having just the darker one. I'll try both on the design board tomorrow.
