I selected a light textured grey for my background colour and a textured red for my accent.
I was really pleased with how this turned out. Pressing directions are provided that result in all kinds of nesting situations and that helps with making nice crisp intersections. In fact I was so happy with this that I made another red block and two black blocks.
With some insulated batting such as thermolam this will make a nice table topper for my daughter who has a black dining room table. Stop on over to the Fat Quarter Shop blog (here) to view the helpful video or to purchase your pattern. Piecefully, Joanne
