When Preeti announced the Positivity Quiltalong I thought, "I can do this!" but I confess I forgot about that pledge until one of the other bloggers posted her initial PQAL blocks. I quickly went to Preeti's blog and copied all the relevant information. (If you've missed the details, start here and follow the tagged posts.)
The block construction is simple. Preeti's blog shows some variations (triangle corners, square corners) and layout ideas. The fabric choices are the challenge. Miscellaneous scrappy? Rainbow? Floral? A genre -- but which one? (Aussie, Kaffe, batik, Civil War, 30's....)
I went with homespun plaid. I did not have enough of any one light homespun to make backgrounds for a set of 48 blocks. I'm trying several different lights. They blend better in the photo than in reality. Here's what I have, so far. The blocks are 10-1/2 x 10-1/2 unfinished.
Positivity provides positively plentiful possibilities!
