Back to the block of the month, though. When we went to class to get the fabric and pattern for this one, my daughter seemed to have sensed it was her favorite color... or she spotted someone else with it... because she started saying, "purple, purple!" and pulling my envelop open. For the rest of class she clutched the swatch while playing games on my phone, so I couldn't get a snapshot of it. It was pretty cute.
This pattern was very similar to one of the previous months, literally a switch of directions for the flying geese and that's it. I want these block to look different, so I was reluctant to put colors in the same places as I did in the last block. Unfortunately that meant using less of this awesome color. That's okay. It's finished and I love it!
My points came out better on this one than the last, which was also awesome. This block has moved to the front of the list of my favorites. I am really enjoying working with the ombre fabrics. I wonder what color will be next? We haven't really had any oranges yet, so I'm wondering if they might pop up here in the fall. Help us get into the spirit of the season.
I had to see them all together. So pretty! I really want to experiment with some modern layouts with these. Ideas, ideas.
