I often start projects with specific fabrics and colors in mind, although not necessarily with a specific theme or direction in mind. For this little quilt, I've cut out 25 background squares, selected the fabrics and have a general pattern in mind.
So far I've completed 4 of the squares and this is one possible arrangement. They won't be permanently arranged until I've finished all of the squares.
I love Corrine's interpretation of one of these blocks featured a couple of posts ago of ice in a frozen pond "with leaves and such trapped in the layers."
This morning I took some photographs of the ice in our little backyard pond.
Now I'm thinking that the white nebula I'm using for Lorlei's second Michael's challenge looks a little bit like ice.
