It was such a pleasure working with solids, and I really have to get more for my stash! I played around a lot and ended up with a block that I call "Monkey in the Middle":
It was so much fun to make this block! I started out by making a tiny monkey wrench block for the middle. It measured 4.5 inches square:
|Tiny but fun!|
Then I pieced four half-dark, half-light striped blocks and four half-square triangle blocks, each 4.5 inches square. I used a lot of scraps and assorted fabrics to create a loose interpretation of the block shape. I sewed it all together, and voila!
|Fun and colorful!|
|View of my workspace. Fabric confetti!|
