You see Karen at Sew many Ways had a red and white fabric swap. I sent in 125 - 5 inch squares and in exchange I got 125 different 5 inch squares!
I opened this package last night after our marathon canning fest and I was so tickled.
I played with every pieces. I grouped them, I regrouped them and then I started allover regrouping them again.
My mind is a whirl on how to set them together. For some reason blue and white vintage fabric keeps popping into my head. Then I think solid red. I sometimes see solid white. How about all polka dots? Maybe strips. I then fall back to the vintage blue and white.
As for as a pattern to use, I'm open to any suggestions.
In this group I love the leaf fabric, it has a white square just big enough to embroidery something on it. Something like thanks to Karen I got these awesome fabrics.
I spy puppy dog prints.
I spy birds.
Something here reminds me of candy canes.
Elephants and lady bugs in the same group!
Peppermint twist and horseshoes?
I love the simplicity of some of these.
Karen even included a gift. You do the math, there were 125 who participated. She made a lot of flowered Tee's.
And the bonus was a bag of selvages. I'm not sure how many of us won a bag, but I know I was sure glad to get one. Now I need to check out one of the selvage quilt books. Here's a neat selvage blog that always has a great show and tell.
Thank you Karen for all your hard work!
