Robbing Peter to Pay Paul

I found these fabrics at a thrift shop last week. I HAD to rescue them!

And I have an idea for them. I picked up these AccuQuilt dies last fall. The one on the right is actually a two die set.

Cutting was as easy as expected.

This is where I’m headed…..I think.

Have a great day!

    I’m just thinking out loud here, but I wonder if you’ve considered swapping the matching squares in each block for one of the other fabrics. You’d still get the unity of design, but the contrast of color/pattern might showcase the distinctive prints more.

    I love your idea!! You find the most amazing things. That fabric is wonderful. Hugs,

  5. What a find! I’d have brought them home, too. Love the design, too – it looks so good!
