Robbing Peter to Pay Paul Improv.....

Wow!  Had an epiphany this morning so worked up what may be a very fun quilt on my list....
One of my all-time favorite blocks is Robbing Peter to Pay Paul...my only problem is the large expanse of space in the center for just one fabric....
So the answer may just be to "liberate" this block....


Then of course add some fantastic perle cotton stitches...


Yep...definitely kicks RPTPP up a notch....
Excuse the wrinkles....you can't imagine what this little block went through this morning ;)
The template for this block came from Marti Michell.

Happy Hump Day!
