Susie's pattern includes 3 designs - this one (checkmark) and swirl and lightening bolt. 1-3/4 yard of ombre for any of them.

Thanks everyone for the kind words. If anyone needs Susie's contact info, please feel free to pm me.

Someone also posted a bargello this week in purples or lavenders that only used a few colors. It was gorgeous!

I understand this sooo much! I have a pattern for a bargello that has 42 fabrics - every time I'd pull it out, I'd be overwhelmed. That was part of the reason I was so intrigued with this idea - 2 fabrics? yeah, now that I've done this and have the concept in my head, I will make the other one sooner than later. This though, I love. I 'need' a reason to make this one in another colorway lol.
