So the woodsy one was easy, I have a lot of that fabric. Now what?
I still have 80 bow tie blocks from a block exchange I did with Fun with Barb about a year ago (maybe 2). These are perfect. Already made, they make a cool pattern and I can throw a few easy borders on.
The color options were bright modern or civil war. I don't feel I really fall into either category but my kids like the brights and I like modern more than civil war, too depressing. (Just my opinon, no offense.)
I also had quite a bit left over, enough for borders and such. A few months ago (before retreat) I had bought the lettered gray for background and borders for these bowties. I had taken them to retreat.....
This is what I have so far. Some of these fabrics I do love. Others not so much, but together they work.
I get nervous doing block exchanges, it's a judgement thing. This was anonymous, so that eases it a little. This is the center, what do you think so far? My 13 year old already loves it.
P.S: I suck at scrappy, so these being random and nothing alike helps me!!
