I just love the stripping that I have used with the purple and green. I had the stripe in my stash and went hunting for the green and purple to go with it - and voila! perfect stripping. The cream linen was another fabric I had collected somewhere along the way, not patchwork fabric but just seems to fit in perfectly here. I got all despondent with it when I ran out of the swap blocks - I wanted it bigger. But now I have got it out and played with it I think it is the perfect size. I am now imagining a border of the cream linen and having a lovely scrappy floral applique as a border. OH! So I will have to look how much of the cream I have - if there isn't enough I guess it's a perfect opportunity to find another cream/beige fabric to take the scrappy another step.
So there is that quilt.... one of many on my to-do list. I haven't played with fabric for so long but now I can feel the urge returning.
