Pastel is not a word usually found in my fiber vocabulary, but perhaps because of warmer weather and longer sunny days, Easter-y colors seemed right. I started with scraps that I sewed into strata and triangles and squares. Then I created this 8" square block which was rather uninteresting in my opinion.
So I followed the challenge instructions to cut the 8" square and play with it.
So I kept adding strips to the middle, tops & sides of the pieces and got this 12" block:
I really like taking the fabric scraps and composing them into specific sized squares. So much so, that I created 5 more in that manner. I am kind of new at this quilting thing and it is amazing how squaring a block up can really help one see it better!
They are currently laid out on a white sheet to see if I want to put white between the blocks, or try something else. I am loving this so far! Who knew pastels could be so great?!
