Thank you so much for all the comments on whether or not to use the aboriginal dots fabric. I really appreciate it and it definitely gave me things to think about!
I had a debate over the fabric for this block too (hmmm, this is turning into a bit of a regular occurrence!). Anyway I bought the fabric for this block thinking it would be easy to pick a block to use it in because it’s little dots rather than a big print, so it would work in the itty-bitty pieces of a Baby Jane block.
But the dots are actually spaced pretty far apart so a lot of blocks would end up with half a spot here and a quarter of one there, which doesn’t really work! I need to remember that when I next go on the hunt for Baby Jane fabric – even if it looks like a small print, if it’s spaced out I should consider it a big print.
In the end I went with a block with large pieces so that each section could show off its spots!
