Something Simple

hoosiertoni

In looking around different blog sites, I came across this photo at Hoosier Toni. Really like the color, the layout, the sweet and simple nature of the design. But then I was hit with the ‘what if’s’.

what if I made it bigger…
what if the layout was different…
what if the blocks had more background than color…
what if I added sashing…
what if I put the block on point…

OMG…something that started off nice and easy has now become more complicated. Thinking through some of my MANY design ideas I decided that I needed to take some fabrics and make some blocks. I could then move them around to see WHICH design layout I liked best. Here is a photo of the small wall hanging in pieces. Not sure about the color placement but since they are pinned to a fleece square I can move them around until I am happy.
