These are the fabrics I had in mind for this challenge. I purchased the reds (pinks), blues and greens at Yoder's General Store in Shipshewana, Indiana. The yellows are some Lund Hand-dyed FQs.
I want to play with a limited palette (3 or maybe 4 colors, if I include the yellows) in many values, along with the dark gray the fabrics are sitting on. While I expect my 9-patch quilt to look quite different from its inspiration, I hope to achieve some of it's glow.
I plan to cut lots-o-strips in preparation for making a bunch of 9-patch blocks while I watch the Olympics.
