Here's my latest fascination: this sample block, a Motif called Depression Block, simple but so very effective. I had these lovely charm squares in vibrant prints. Seemed like it'd be nice. Against the white it's so crisp & with a subtle directional, white-on-white provides a sharp contrast. I used a sheer white fabric with it that I'd found & layered it with a sheet of fusible interfacing between the layers to give it more stability. Such fun! And on the back, I took a chance to play a little bit more.

These several doll quilts were interesting to make from orphan blocks & bits of samplers. and the Back: Doing these can be fast & fun & make for small lessons of their own in the process. These quilt blocks were made from what I chose to call 'unfortunately colored' charms squares which came my way some how or another. While the colors are questionable, the way they're laid out, there's enough color contrast to play up the graphic quality of this particular design. On the reverse, a bit of piecing.
