Size:  1.74 MBI traced 5x5 chalk outlines so how would that look doing 10x10 block instead of 5x5, of course it wouldn't be falling charms LOL! back to first base

    can you get a third fabric in maybe the pink or blue colors? that might help. I personally love all the purple. but that is me

    No such thing as too much purple! If you want to break it up -- use some black or white like you see around the edges of the flowers or even a little of the pink or aqua. I didn't see your earlier post - if you're fussy cutting squares, you could easily border them in one of the other colors...maybe I'll try to find your other post

    LOVE THE FABRIC. I missed the other post. If I had the fabric, I would use a pattern called BQ2. It would be perfect with this fabric. PM me if you have any questions!

    Some white would make both the aqua and the purple pop.

    If the chalk outline is 10 inches, it will be Falling Layer Cake and an original. Aren't layer cake squares 10 inches? I think the outlines pictures have enough turquoise to contrast with the purple pin dot.

    I'd add more purple print ..... 'cause I like purple ..... and maybe some black to put some pop to the aqua and purple. Your aqua/purple flowered fabric is fantastic!
    Make it a scrappy happy day!
