Hi! I'm hoping over from Hive 6 this month. When I saw plaids my first thought was, I have those! I hope that they fit in with your other blocks. I did not sew them into the finished square in case you needed to mix them up some more. So, since I didn't I created a couple extra smaller blocks for you.
My first job was at Rag Shop, a fabric and craft store. The entire company went out of business in 2007, which was very sad. I still miss that store. It is where I was given freedom to create, where my love of fabrics (and collecting them) started, and also where I worked when I made my first quilt.
