I have been sewing in an improvisational way, with my yellow scraps, and trying to get value change, from light almost white to dark almost golden brown.
|what do you think of this little flower border? It has a poem|
When I added in some NY Beauty blocks, 3 spire, 4 spire and 5 spire, I really got excited. These little 4" blocks take more time than large ones, but you use little scraps and they are so cute!
