A little cutting -

After I decided to audition some fabrics for my Blue Floral Crumb Squares -

Realizing a little too late that I would barely have enough of the Steel Blue for the sashing strips and would run out before I got to the side triangles and corners - ;))

Funny how it looks so BLUE on a lighter Gray -

And so GRAY on a brighter Blue -

And BLUE again on a darker Gray -

Then I thought I would try a GREEN - just because -

And it doesn't look that bad - but not that great either -

So then I tried a GOLD -

Which would need a different color for the center square -

And then back to a GREEN - more muted this time -

It's actually the green version of the GOLD fabric above -

And decided to go with that -

So I "Cut and Kitted" what I needed for each set of blocks -

And put them in baggies in groups of 5 -

Seems easier to keep track of them that way -

I also cut the side triangles (QST) and the corners (HST) while I was at it - ;))

What were the deciding factors in going with the muted GREEN? -

It reminds me of one of the shirts my husband used to wear with THIS TIE -

And I have LOTS of it -

So there was NO chance of running out before I got all of the pieces cut - LOL - ;))

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -

Great choice. I look forward to seeing it come together.

That blue floral looks like something I have in my stash. Well, the scrappy one is still in the hoop so I won't be starting something else this week.
