Out of My Color Box

I was looking at my huge stash of fabric and noticed a large amount of Blue civil war fabrics have been added.  Never being a blue person, I thought I would challenge myself to working with a new colorway.   I started with left over fabric from another project and started making applique blocks using EPP for the flowers.  Added a snowball block in between.  Have one more row before I start the borders.

From trimming the snowball blocks I ended up with 2 inch HST.  Decided to use them in some sort of a pillow.  Decided the pillow should be a center with an embroidered basket on a left over square from the quilt.

Pillow will finish to 16 inches square.   I’ll let this sit a couple of days to see if I still like the way it looks.
