I am using this line called Simple Marks by Malka Dubrawsky for Moda Fabrics. I don't know if this line is still available but I've had it for a while. I wanted something that I can make quickly and sort of looks scrappy. I found Bonnie Hunt's Scrappy Mountain Majesties pattern on her blog and was totally do-able in a short time.
I didn't feel like cutting down the layer cake squares since the pattern required some trimming anyways. I have some pretty 1 1/2" strips leftover after trimming. I will have to think of some small projects to use them up.
The shirt I've been working on is almost complete. I love the red contrast on the inside of the collar. I should be able to get it done sometime today. The only thing left to do on this shirt are buttons and hemming.
