There has been a bit of progress. Sadly the poor winter light makes it difficult to get a true picture of the colors.
I have put together the blocks in sashing. Quite scrappy (liberated), using every piece (leftovers from the 2 Cherrywood Grab bags I started with). Not having a big amount of fabric to begin with was a bit liberating, too. I just used what I had.
The dark purple in the frame is a piece of Kona Cotton. I think it gives a nice difference in texture and depth of color.
Next step is the letters and numbers.... Just waiting for more fabric to play with ; )
Wish me luck...
