|Falling in Love|
My rule of thumb for picking fabric was lights, mediums and darks. Once I had that balance, I was off the making quarter square triangles. I had it in my mind how I wanted the colors to be laid out. The tricky part was the blending of the colors into each other.

Once I was satisfied with the layout, I stacked them on top of card board and mats, in rows that made sense to me.

Once the pieces were all pieced and joined, I tackled the back. I decided to use a top that I had finished prior to starting this project that consisted of blue and orange quarter square triangles. I worked around that piece with orphan squares and fabrics that were not used. I did the back by piecing it "log-cabin style" working my way around the central piece.
