Silk purse

You know the saying.
Well here's the sows ear.
It is a very strange color. This is a 10" square. We have to make as many blocks as we want from this piece, 12 x 12 or 6 x 6 or 12 x 6. Retreat is in 16 days (not that I'm counting!) and I will be making some of these blocks with our Asian theme. Even if you don't particularly like this fabric I can guarantee that the blocks our members will make will make it look beautiful.
Here is last years fabric and the blocks that were made. They really were beautiful.







So I am expecting lots of pinks, greens and golds to go with this years fabrics. I will probably make one 12" block and two rectangle blocks. I like those weird sizes.

Until next time...

I am always amazed to see what can be done with ugly fabric. I look forward to seeing the blocks.

Can't wait to see how it is used. BTW I kind of like it.
