March Blocks for Katie

adelaidelemonade had us make improv blocks for her in March. She sent all this luscious purple fabric. I had a hard time deciding on what to use. The quilt is going to be for her daughter.

Its not really obvious, but the light blue background flower fabric is actually folded to look like it has pleats in block with the window pane look.

I was just trying to organize everything for my May blocks and I just wanted to check if my idea was still okay before I get all gung ho. I have put together 2 sets of inspiration galleries on flickr so that you have a better idea of Charley Harper and his work. I have also included some of his mosiac/tile work because I think it shows best how this may be done for a quilt.

That all being said, if people aren't up for it, ABSOLUTELY no worries. I have lots of other ideas and tons of fabric so I can put together another block and have it out asap so you have all of May to work on it.

Could you let me know? Again, if it seems too much, I am not offended in the least and would be happy to send out something a little more traditional.

Thanks so much for your help.
