City Sampler book as a Christmas gift. Initially I had planned to follow one of the book's layouts (I had made one of every single block in the book out of black, gray, and white fabrics), and then decided I wasn't really crazy about that design.
I spent much of yesterday auditioning which blocks to use, laying them out, and making the QSTs and HSTs to complete the setting. The lightest gray HSTs adjacent to the corners are yet to be made (I bought the fabric today -- everything else was already on hand!). Then I'll assemble the rows and columns and decide about a border (opinions solicited). No designated recipient for this project as yet, but I suspect someone will want it!
And I suppose there really are at least fifty shades. But I'm not counting.
