I was thrilled to find that one of my fabrics had 3" squares which looked like painted tiles. I cut that piece of fabric into little “tiles” and made some of each of the simple challenge units, not knowing where they would end up. I arranged some of the “tiles” and pieced units, filled some spaces with rectangles of the print background, moved the pieces around, made some more units, cut some more print rectangles, repeat, repeat, repeat . . until I was pleased with the final design. Sewing it together was a piece of cake—horizontal rows of units and rectangles. My border is simple, but very effective.
