Molly picked the wonky star for this month's TwitterB Block (I'm also going with the wonky star next month!). She sent us a fat quarter of this dusky blue medallion Michael Miller print. I wasn't sure what to pair with it from my stash. So, I kept it pretty simple.
I added some Kona Snow and made the block above. Here's a detail of the center block.
I was going for a little texture, doing a little 4.5" improv block. I'm not sure it's as successful as I wanted it to be, but it's OK, because I aways make at least two blocks :)
This one is Kona Snow and Eggplant, paired with a little piece of Parisville.
Hopefully, Molly will like them!
It's been quiet around here, but I've actually been doing a lot of sewing, but I don't have too much to show for it quite yet. I made my nephew a present that I'll be posting about soon (his birthday party is on Sunday) and I'm trying to do some straight-line quilting (ugh!) on a quilt that I'd like to enter in Project Modern: Challenge 4. We'll see, though - I think I bit off a little more than I can chew with my little machine. Just getting 10 lines on it took a big part of my afternoon and then there's the dreaded B-word (binding).
