Color Blast -

I played with the two middle panels - 
For my Color Blast
Free pattern from Benartex - HERE -  

And decided to reverse the order - 

So that the Horizontal stripes in the first panel  - 
Wouldn't be next to the Vertical stripes in the second panel - 

So - 

Now it's a top - 

Ta - Dah!! - ;))

And upside-down -

I like the pattern - A LOT - 

And especially like how the various fabrics play well together - 

Even though they didn't really look like they would - LOL -
A couple of notes - 
For next time - 
1 - To use the full width of the quarter-yard cut - 
Either cut the sections at 6" and 3" - 
Or cut them at 5-1/2" and 3-1/2" -
Cutting one at 5-1/4" and one at 3" - leaves a (silly to me) 3/4" strip scrap - 
2 - Add borders to the sides to adjust the proportions -
Due to the change in the size of the pieces - 

3 - One-way prints or stripes will be "straight up" in the larger sections - 
And will be "side-ways" in the narrower strips - or vice versa -
4 - When you plan the placement of your fabrics - 
Use some scraps to make a "cheat sheet" -  to "map it out" - 
Because it is REALLY easy to mix them up - 
Ask me how I know - LOL -
After I added all of the photos to this post - 
I realized that they were ALL upside down - 
And the last one - the one I had labeled - upside-down -
Was actually right-side up -
So I had to re-do the order - 
Because I'm not re-doing the photos - LOL -  ;))

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -
