I loved the almost white on gold, but had to try it on some other colours too.
It wasn’t until I went to dark fabrics that I found some I liked as much as the gold.
So here are three very similar designs on blue, green and red backgrounds. I like them all, and I don’t like blue except above me when I am outdoors.
I could live with the green most of the time, but use the red during the Christmas season … or maybe the gold!
Then I tried adding another colour … but stopped there!
Here is a look at the block collection I have put together to play with in the two project files, the gold and the others.
There is a strong possibility that some of the applique block designs will be turned on point, and some may be modified to become border blocks, and some will be changed to give diagonal lines.
I have already made some changes to the lot above.
I started with nearly 400 blocks in the scrapbook, but most of them were too busy … too many shapes disappeared when the applique became just one colour and the designs became a blob.
Pieced blocks had to be very simple blocks to work in just two fabrics so I deleted all of them as I wanted enough shapes in each block to maintain an overall lacy look. After all, it was the lacy look which started all of this!
The collection was reduced to about 40, then grew with the variations to 60. That is more than enough to play with!
