I began English paper piecing these blocks in 2017, a pattern called Mischief by Karen Tripp. The center fabric is a batik that spans the rainbow and I tried to use as many colors as possible and then chose coordinating Oakshott shot cottons.
When I had 25 blocks, I decided that was enough for a center medallion. But what color to use for the background?
Cream? No. Way too boring.
