This is my personal favorite. Partly because I love Amy Butler's Soul Blossoms, and partly because I thought this was so clever. This pattern/block/unit is the same one as SNOW RUBY. I was looking at the red in it, and thought--what if this was background and the rest scrappy? Would the scrappy pieces kind of dance up and down? And they did!
It uses 12 Fat Quarters and a yard of Background to make a 54"x 70" throw. There are a few prints pieces left over, but it does use the fabric efficiently.
For our cover girl, I wanted the white to contrast strongly with the prints and have a fresh, modern look. I also made up this other model, with Soul Blossoms again, and a blendy apricot batik--it kind of melts in your mouth like sherbet.
