Type of item: Home Decor
Cotton Scraps left over from Patriota in Petticoats and my stash. Did not buy a thing.
What was your inspiration?
The class, Repiecing the Past and wanting to use scraps.
What are you most proud of?
That is is so pretty!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Take the class and follow Kaye's instructions. She is amazing. When you are picking colors and fabrics, try and repeat each color about 3 times, like I did with the blue and the rust color. It creates movement and helps pull things together. Again, on the sashings, I tried to coordinate the sashing pieces with the blocks that they surrounded to highlight those blocks.
