What was your inspiration? I wanted to use up quite a few yards of brown fabric that I used to make a cover for a down comforter. I combined it with turquoise and deep red as well as fall yellows and oranges. Initially, I had the darker colors near the middle but when I reversed it and put the darker colors to the edge, a whole new pattern emerged. I liked it so much, I actually ripped apart the first two blocks to reorient them.
