I picked up these colors right before the family vacation. I guess I was in a holiday mood. This reminds me of a red and white picnic table cloth. I almost put black ants running across it. I could also see it with a flower sewn onto it. After getting it all together, I thought it'd be a great pattern to use for a chess/checker board...hum... I also thought, if it were a little bigger, that it'd make a great quilt for an American Girl doll bed. I could also see it as a fun summer purse/grocery shopping bag.
