I bought this book awhile ago I bought this book and yesterday I finally got around to trying her technique. I have decided that I don't have a large enough stash to do justice to this method. Or maybe I'll have to go shopping with this book in mind. I'd need to buy at least 20 different fabrics. My favorites in the book are done with Japanese fabrics. Maybe I need to go back to Blue Bamboo in Minneapolis. No, I don't want to order online. I want to go back to that store and blow my mind on all their wonderful fabrics!
I used all greens. The center bottom block is the most successful in my opinion. I was trying to get a line that would go through the block and the circle. I am relatively happy with the background arrangement but would change some of the circles if I had different fabric. One of the samples is done in all black and whites. I may give that a try since I have quite a few of them. Next time I'll sew the circles on with invisible thread. On this one I used dark thread and a hemming stitch.
I'm noticing a trend here with books that have the words play or games in the title.
