Here are my two latest blocks for the Scrap Quilting Forum quiltalong. I had to add another color for the block on the left; since there is a pale purple dot in the print (this is the print I'm using for the second trio of the blocks I'll be making, and it's the first of this trio), I used a pale purple. I have mixed feelings about it; I feel it stands out too much and might have been better in the position of the pattern fabric. But then again, maybe not. I am trusting the process, as I feel sure it will all look fine once it's done. I'm looking forward to see how I can add in the light purple in future blocks.
Here are all six of my Hazel blocks. LOVE them! The fabric next to them is what I plan to use with the blocks, but I am realizing I need a dark fabric for contrast and also something to tie in the cream in the background of the print fabric. Inspiration is not forthcoming, but I have time to let ideas percolate. I also welcome ideas from anyone viewing this!

I will never be recruited into the Quilting Police – I am not a perfectionist when it comes to quilting. I prefer my quilts done (not that I don't have plenty that are only partly done and many many more in the dream stages). I also like to get a deal on fabric, and I like to use up my fabric efficiently. I created this blog to show the method of my madness...
