I have completed the blocks for five rows (only four shown) and while I like it, I think it needs a contrast stripe to break up each purple row. So off the Spotlight I went and purchased a metre of this here (on the right) gold fabric
And also a metre of this gorgeous printed number. Unfortunately I think the brightness of this will overpower my purple flower fabric, which I want to be the hero of the quilt.
I will definitely get use of it though, maybe make a bag from it! I hope to get some blocks made up with my new gold fabric today so I can get a real feel for what it will look like. Wish me luck!
