mom, can you knit this for me?



pretty please? (i adore this. from here).

OK I haven't just been goofing around on the internet all day. I did manage to complete Tracy's block for 12 square.

I loved all her fabric choices, warm grays with pops of color, but I stressed out a bit on the design. She asked for some textural elements so I cut and sewed strips of the light grey, included some raw edges from the linen and rust fabrics and incorporated the silver embroidery thread that the fabric stacks were tied up with when they arrived.

I loved working on this block, I hope she likes it!
