Some low volume triangles were left over, too. I didn't want all that fabric to go to waste. Time to come up with Plan C.
Actually, strong value contrast can be a really good design element when it's used in the right proportions and with attention to balance. Thus, Plan C:
The ombre stripe is a recycled shirt. So is the navy stripe, and the white linen stripe. The grey herringbone is a recycled bed sheet. They play nicely together, and with the leftover low volume prints. They'll work for an older boy. Come back Friday and I'll have a finished top to show.
Heart Builders sent me fabrics to make one top. They're getting three. Other people will quilt these tops and bind them. Then the quilts will be given to kids whose life circumstances are in some kind of difficult transition. I'm happy to send three tops for a good cause.
