    After spending so much time on projects for others, I decided to take some time to do something for ME. I have had some fabric for a long time that I have been dying to use, and recently picked up a book about making fabulous quilts with one fabric. The two kind of clicked together for me, so away I went! Here are a few pictures of the WIP.

    This is the square before I cut it up and put it back together again.

    This is what the blocks look like together without any sashing.... I like it, but think it is a bit too busy this way.

    This is a beautiful rich, deep red/burgandy.

    The red and green are mild blenders, but this blue is true.

    I like the green the best.. for some reason the other two tend to take my eyes away from the blocks.

    Love them. The Green tones them down. I loose the blocks on the red. And the blue makes them Pop.
