    The inspiration behind this top was the 3" fuchsia squares that Cathy M sent over to me last year...the colours are off if you can imagine they are more into voilets and aubergines rather than bluey purple as they look, the orange is more a coral/red which picks up the little fuchsia buds :D

    Thanks Katie, I found a pattern on line, but with repeating the block you ended up with two squares meeting so I missed out the outside edge on to sides to allow the pattern to flow....I never do as I am told lol!! :D

    WOW Izy

    What a lovely top - then all your tops are lovely :wink:

    Where did you get the idea from I have a friend who is after a easy but effective pattern - this would be ideal.

    Ermm not sure now lol!! But you can work it out on squared paper, it's an easy row by row pattern, great for beginners, I was just looking for something quick to do before going to the UK :D

    Nice to have you back doing lovely piecing!
    Sometimes colors photograph better outside. My camera likes to change the colors on me, too!
