But pretty darn close. I'm sorry if some of you think this fabric is
beautiful. While I do think it would make a beautiful sarong
or Hawaiian shirt or moo-moo, I am finding it challenging to
make a quilt block.
Each year at our guild retreat (in 30 more days!), we are
instructed to make a block from a given fabric. Yes, it
is usually bordering on ugly. We get to put our name in a
hat for each block we make.
I will admit that even with the bordering-on-ugly fabric, our
retreaters come up with some very creative ways to make
them look beautiful.
This is a 12" square so you can see the pattern is quite large.
The rules for this block exchange are to make a 12" or 6" square
or a 6 x 12" rectangle. Since I am somewhat of a rebel I was
thinking about making the rectangle. I pulled some bright
fabrics (orange, turquoise, pink) last night and I think they
might actually help. So I'm off to browse the internet to
choose a block pattern. Hmmm, now that I look at it, could
I get some sort of stack & whack out of this? Maybe I'll
make the rectangle and a 12" square.
Watch me win these blocks!!!
Until next time...
