What is it about being on the inside looking out? We spend a lot of time looking out the windows onto our backyard. I stop many times during my day just to see "who" has come by for a visit, and right now that means hoping to catch a glimpse of one of the new fawns.
When I saw the block I chose for Day 93 it reminded me of a window. I really thought the name of the block lacked any kind of imagination though-it is simply called "New Pattern" and appeared in Peterson's Magazine in....wait for it...1857!
I decided to use a varriety of blacks for my dark fabric just because I am using up scraps. That did mean I needed to be careful when I laid out the pieces to make sure I had the blacks matched properly.
I also went with a gray-on-gray print for the light fabric. I liked the fact that it gave the impression of looking out at a garden. However, if I had chosen a brightly colored print instead I think it would have been too much for the block and taken away from the overall sense, which is really quite peaceful.
And looked who showed up out my window.
