The latest plan is to sew together the little squares and then add some plain blocks to them to end up with a wallhanging. I plan to embroider flowers in the plain blocks - sort of with a redwork-ish look.
Here are the blocks...
I made prairie points from the leftover squares and plan to put those on the border. Now, I have a question for y'all and would like your input as to what colour you think I should use to embroider the flowers? I don't think red is quite what I want to use because I think it would overpower the pretty fabrics. Black is too stark I think. What do you think of grey? Or do you have another suggestion you think would work? I just want to use one colour throughout so whatever it is will have to work with all the blocks.
Over to you!!

And many be thy friends.
