So glad that BOM Rehab coincided with a new release for the Blogger Girls BOM pattern. The third block in the series was available Friday, and I was done with both versions by Saturday night. I have even tackled my fear of Flickr and uploaded my pictures into the Blogger Girl’s group for all to see!
This was a neat block… I didn’t much like how my first one ended up. Not enough variation in scale of prints I think. But it will mix in overall, so I’m leaving it. I love my alternate block setting and fabric selections. I went with a layout that I saw from Lisa of Stashmaster blog fame. She highlighted the churn dash design in the center, which I did as well.
Here’s the primary layout:
And here’s the alternate layout for the same block pattern:
I came across some random stash yardage of La Petite Ecole by French General and used the red floral from it to frame the outside square-in-a-square and the churn dash blue fabric. It mixed in really well. I’ve pull some other items from that group to consider on the next blocks too. The rest of the fabric is still from the La Belle Fleur collection that just came out.
Here are all six of my blocks completed:
Not bad for a BOM Rehab finish!
Here’s a sneak peak at something else I worked on yesterday. I’ll reveal it more later this week… 🙂
Have a wonderful week and thanks for stopping by!
