The sky has been thick with clouds for days. The raindrops would glisten if there were the least ray of sunshine but it's been dark, dark, dark. It's hard to see details on the greyest of days and turning on an electric light helps but not to see a fabric's true colors or how it will play with other fabrics.
I should not have waited until this week to choose fabrics for my Cheri Payne Baskets of Plenty block 4.
Colors in the photos below are somewhat close to accurate but none are the true colors.
This little basket will have a border of triangles along its top, hence the fabric strip.
There are three or four flower shapes, several leaves, and a bird for use in this block.
Maybe it will be a star-shaped flower unless the star moves to the basket. Right now it's all play -- elements, colors,
fabrics, and placement of all the elements. Anything's possible.
The sun came out today for a few minutes but I missed the chance to photograph. Tomorrow's a day of rest but it looks like sunshine is predicted for Monday: I won't have to quilt in the dark. It'll be a good day to decide fabric and colors.
I hope you've had sunny days.
