About a year and a half ago, I bought this fabric. It is by Brandon Mably and is called "pastel fish lips" (that's the link in case you want to head over right now and purchase some). Alternatively I can mail you about an eighth of a yard. All you have to do is ask.
When it arrived, it was one of those purchases that looked totally different in person than on my computer screen. The circles seemed huge. No, I did not pay attention to the ruler they had on the fabric to give you an idea of the scale.
I decided this week to use this "pastel" fabric as the dark in one of my 36-patch blocks. I paired it with a more "sedate" fabric that veers toward the traditional side. Not only light versus dark, but traditional versus
Here is my block.
My question: Does it blend? Or does it totally scream "Hey, look at ME!"
Here is it next to another block that is also larger scale. But this design also has a lot of space to "rest." There is no resting with "fish lips."
I put it right in the midst of other blocks.
Thanks once again, Lee, for hosting this weekly show-and-tell!
