As you might have read in my last post,
I was working on a plan for these scraps left over from this 2009 quilt.
It started with a simple 9 patch and an alternating block with a colored center, the farther I went the more I disliked it...I tried to like it, but I just couldn't.
I pulled out all the alternate blocks and stuck them to the side on my flannel design wall. I added solid neutral blocks between the 9 patches.
Hmmmm....Look what I started to see.
And then it needed a separation border.

Don't you just love this fabric!

Nothing left but some shavings and a couple of strips.
