I have started on a new quilting project. My husband gave me fat quarters of Innocent Crush by Anna Maria Horner for Christmas. I debated long and hard over how to use them and I have to say that I am not yet convinced that I made the right choice!
I wanted to find a block that used just two fabrics so that I could pair each Innocent Crush fabric with a coordinating Kona Solid. I also wanted to make my blocks simple enough and big enough so that the Innocent Crush fabrics were cut into fairly large pieces since they are such large scale prints. I settled on the Double Hourglass block and my finished blocks will be 10" square.
I love each individual block so far but I am concerned about putting them all together. I am going to forge ahead though and see how it looks once I add all the different solids. I might have to eliminate some blocks at the end if they just don't work with the others.
