Note to Self, October 2016

Page Content: 

Things don’t have to be complicated to be interesting. One simple block takes on a different look depending on color placement and those shapes immediately surrounding it. Add in one solid square and one pieced block and the impact is quite significant.

Note to Self is made up of only three fabrics (light, medium and dark) and is constructed with a fast and forgiving approach. The bold visual will still be achieved if the angles are not exact and the color transition occurs naturally at the seams, reducing the need to be fussy.
