See how the unrelated fabrics all of a sudden become less startling when they are smaller bits, all jumbled together?

I then put the 4-square blocks together into the Irish Chain blocks, using the dark green background fabric to calm down the bright mix of dresses fabric:Leticia piles of irish chain blocks
