A bunch of black and white
Here's a couple of things I actually did today - woo hoo. First, a small block (4") which is the starting point for the Blogger Round Robin I am taking part in - I won't be able to show the subsequent work I do, though as we are all showing "centres" to start with, I can show that part each month just to have something to post. It took me quite a while to decide what I wanted to do as the block I choose will be how everyone else decides what style and colour to use when adding to my piece. Personally, I'm not TOO worried, as long as it goes well with the starting point. So, I decided to use black and white with some nice, strong colours and pick a flower as the starting place... Anyway, in the end, I decided not to overthink it and just pick something I like and go with it.
When I'd finished with the block, I wanted to work on something else, but wasn't quite ready to work on the Exquisite Corpse, which is the next thing I have to do, time wise - I am nearly ready, probably will work on it on Thursday - but it's still speaking to me a bit, so I need to be sure to listen before starting, lol. Anyway, I wanted something small, simple and quick so I grabbed some four patches I'd been making as enders and leaders and put frames on them in black and white (I was in b/w mode, what can I say). Here are 8; I will do enough more to make a baby quilt, which will then probably go to charity.
