I have had this idea to use Bonnie Hunters "Hopscotch and Butterscotch" pattern for a baby quilt for a long time. I now have the opportunity to make one for a girl at work. I had thought I would use yellow and white four patches and pink bar units with orange sashing but I didn't have enough of any one piece of orange so I used orange and pink in the bar units and still just used yellow for the four patches. So I started auditioning sashing fabric. Believe it or not this is actually a soft purple but it really looks blue here so I was afraid it would be too strong for the blocks.
I tried this hot pink but it turned red
This wasn't the right one either.
I started another baby quilt from a book called Pinwheel Pandemonium and the pattern I am trying is Pinwheels gone wild. Of course I am using brighter colors than they have chosen. Here are two blocks.
Oh yea, if any of my stitching buddies has a white on white with the alphabet in capital letters on it, I need more for this one if I am going to use the same background on all blocks. Just let me know if you think you have some. THANKS
