The fabrics are fun and vibrant, and I added just a few solids to the mix.
I cut 4.5" squares and made a pile of HSTs (using the two-at-a-time method).
After trimming down the HSTs to 4" squares, I paired them with 4" squares cut from the same prints and solids to make an "HST plus One".
Simple, but awesome! These are then trimmed down to 3.5" blocks, and I'm using them with HSTs and plain 3.5" blocks to make a fun patchwork project.
I'm loving the woven look that is created by combining shapes of the same print.
I plan on building this WIP into a small quilt top soon, so I'll keep you posted!

Churn dash blocks are a dear favorite of mine, and I just love how scrappy this version is.
I chose a limited palette but used a heavy bundle of different prints from the stash.
I quilted it with simple wavy lines, and used the solid corners for a little arc action.
I can't wait for this one to come home.
