Again I must apologize for my lack of posts. I haven't been making much progress on projects, so there is not really a whole lot to blog about.
I settled on a pattern to use with this fabric collection that I've had for a couple of months.

I made a test block using the fabrics and loved how it turned out. I took a pic, but it's still in my digital camera. I will try and download it this weekend.
