BRIGHT IDEA UPDATE

More "Bright Idea" blocks have been made.  Four to be exact.  Five left to stitch yet.  I am using two backgrounds.  Both tone on tone.  One a very tiny flower print and the other a stripe.  When the blocks are set together, there will be a triangle border separating them.  For the current picture, though, I have them side by side.

Back to the sewing room.  I am cutting out applique pieces for some other quilts.  I feel this urge to decrease the stash some.

Very cute pattern. I have the same feeling, it was great to cut 3 yards for a shop sample backing and roll off the end of a bolt of another fabric. We are never going to run out and there's lots more where our stash came from!

I love the fabrics and colors you've chosen for these as well.

Couldn't detect the different backgrounds until I enlarged the photo. Does the triangle border use the same fabrics as the wreaths?
