I had a little bit of time and I wanted needed to play with some fabric. In this post I talked about joining in on Bonnie Hunter's Bow Tie Challenge. I am making my Bow Tie blocks in Indigo Blue and Soldier Blue fabrics with a Cheddar background. I found my missing blues and added them to the stack. Out of curiosity I counted the fabrics. I have 58 different blues that will be in this quilt! That number surprised me but made me happy. The scrappier the better!
I began the cutting process with the blues. The blocks finish at a 3 inch square. I really didn't think about it until I had to cut the itty bitty 1 1/4" squares for the knot portion. That is small! I love small blocks and pieces in quilts so I am not worried about it, but goodness that is small! lol Do you see the little pile of fabrics behind the big one? This is what they look close up - Indigo Blue with a touch of Cheddar.
I am trying to decide if I want to add them into the mix and let them play with the other fabrics or keep the Cheddar color in the background only. What do you think? Should I stick with just the blues and let the Cheddar background be the contrast? Hmmmm
