I happened to have this fabric that illustrates the fairy tale of Little Red Riding Hood. And so I got the fabric off the shelf and let it sit on the table as I thought about what I wanted to make. Slowly over the past weeks I sketched some ideas.
I decided one block would be a basket block. I love basket blocks and there are so many ways to make a quilt block look like a basket. This shape seemed to fit what I've been seeing in my head.
Since I am working on my Sunbonnet Sue blocks it gave me the idea to make Little Red a hooded girl with a long dress holding flowers with one hand (unseen).
I decided to use a linen look fabric instead of a white or another print for the background fabric. I had some of that French General fabric that just fit the bill.
I have more blocks in mind. It is slow going because of so many other things going on but I am enjoying working on a new idea.
