As an educator of elementary children, it's always a good idea to use visuals to make your point. My friend, Karen Walker, brought me some Riley Blake scraps from her last jelly roll quilt. we dumped them out on the ironing board and spread them out.....
When I told Karen that Riley Blake is considering discontinuing their line of gingham fabrics, she just looked at me as if I was crazy, then she said, "let me have those gingham scraps back!" This next picture is what that jelly roll looks like without gingham fabric.
Seriously?! Not the greatest seller now!
Here are those little bitty scraps made into 1 3/4" half square triangles and they sure do look good with that bottom triangle made of gingham!
Okay friends, go out and buy some RBD gingham and let your opinions be heard!
