I'm so enjoying working with little squares, that now I'm creating an indeterminate piece, using white and ivory squares. I'm making small nine-patches that I'll eventually stitch together. Working with 1-1/2 inch squares (my preferred size and the size in Nightfall), as well as smaller and larger squares. You can work all sizes together into one piece, which is what I intend to do.
I recently bought a number of quarters (fat and long) of a bunch of different fabrics, to flesh out my stash. I like using handmade and commercial fabrics together. A lot of the white/ivory cloth I'm using now is vintage table linens that I've had since my eco dyeing days, as well as undyed silk jacquard fabrics, plus other undyed cottons and linens.
Have a great week. Blessings.
