I picked a pale blue batik to use as a background and then started picking fabrics. The inner "x" piece is a fantastic batik with circular patterns. They look great cut into an x. Then I started trying to decide what went behind the x:
Just Right! It allows the fabric in the "x" to shine.
Now to decide on the curves. I like this fabric.
Blue dots? They don't really do much.
Lavender?! It brings out the lavender in the "x" fabric and makes the block sparkle. I love it!
Now to blanket-stitch it! I've decided to call this project Unexpected Tablerunner.
