Choose Your Own BlockAlong 10/20/14

Today's blocks are brought to you by Liberty of London.  My accumulation of fat quarters looks pretty sitting on the shelves, but it's nice to cut into them every once in a while, don't you think?

First up is Block I-1.  I followed the cutting instructions from That Quilt for both blocks.  These pieces are relatively large, the smallest strip being 1.25" wide and the largest square measuring at 2.75" unfinished.  The background fabric is Cotton+Steel.

The second block is C-3.  This block has quite a few strips and squares, but I'm finding that 1.25" widths seem "normal" now and .75"  are on the smallish side ;-))   I used scraps from our guild's Festival of Trees project for the background; it's 25th and Pine from Moda.

I am enjoying the process.  It's a relief and a joy when the resulting block is squared to five inches!

 The individual block photos aren't true to color as the battery in my flash was low.  The print fabrics are really so pretty, and I love how they look in these tiny blocks.

Thank you for the continued support and encouragement each week!  I read and delight in every comment and hope to catch up on my emails soon.

Heading now to see Michelle and Cindy's progress.  
Thanks for stopping by,
