I am really loving what I'm working on with the Grinch fabrics from Robert Kauffman! I have combined a bunch of fabrics from that line, the panels and a couple of the others that have scenes from the book and the famous TV special.
I decided to alternate the blocks, making half with white at the outside, and the other half with color on the outer edge. This makes it really simple. And it's going very fast with me doing a block or two a day. I haven't decided yet how many blocks I will make - 5 x 6 possibly for a nice throw size.
Here are the blocks I did yesterday:
Love that Max! I have to do the Cindy Lou Who block soon.
This is quite a leap out of my comfort zone I have to say. Normally I like to plan ahead, and I think about exactly where I am headed before I start cutting fabrics. This time I am completely flying by the seat of my pants - choosing fabrics for each block as I do them. Of course I did set some structure by alternating the edge colors of the blocks. And I am enjoying the freedom of this approach! I'm thinking a lot more improv is in my future?
