I have been working away on my Sugar Block Club blocks, hoping to get caught up with all but the paper piecing.
I got to work on another block by choosing and then cutting into these fabrics (note that the majority of the fabrics I'm using come from a Blogger Bundle from Pink Castle Fabrics by Red Pepper Quilts).
|The orange dot fabric looks more red in these photos, but it is actually a lovely, deep orange.|
In between cutting and piecing, I went from liking the newsprint fabric for the middle to the text fabric that I used in my May block for the middle. The scale seemed to work better and I'm happy I switched it.
|Making these little blocks was actually very satisfying.|
|This is the finished block. Love it! I do need to make sure I use less orange in my next block, though.|
|And here are all the finished blocks together. I will be redoing the paper-pieced block (top left) but I'm not planning on doing those any time soon.|
I am slightly worried about the cohesiveness of the blocks once they are all put together but for now I am just trying to enjoy the process (and trying not to curse Allison of Stitchery Ditchery Dock too much for her tiny cuts and intricate piecing).
Wow! Your blocks all look amazing!!ReplyDelete
