Someone once told me I was obsessed with colorwash. I prefer to think I am driven to create with a smooth blend of values. I used to cut kits of 2.5″ squares when I taught colorwash classes. There was usually a piece left by the fold from which I could cut a 2″ or 1.5″ square. If I cut a 1.5″ square the leftover was 1″ and those are the pieces I used for this little quilt. The 6″ ruler is to give you a perspective of the size of the piece. I know I still have a tray of 1″ squares in one of my storage boxes.
