So, I went in search of dark (ie floor coloured fabrics).
I found: a mid grey Oakshott cotton, a Grunge fabric (though I don't know what the colour is called) and an old shirt. Here they are:
The Oakshott didn't float my boat and although I do like the Grunge, I decided to go with the shirt. I started with recycled stuff so it seems the right thing to keep going in that direction if I have the choice. I think this will work as it is not actually a solid, but has tiny stripes of red and yellow and white running through it. This shot makes it look dark blue but in the cold light of day it is darker and more black than blue, to my eye at least.
I have managed to add strips using squares of this fabric and my left over circle blocks to three sides. I cut them the same size (ish) as the original squares and then added little bits of the sashing fabric in to get things to the right size. One more side to go and then I'll be back to trying to figure out /what next?'
