On the spur of the moment I decided to join in with the Something New Sampler over at The Cute Life. It caught my attention as it uses rectangular blocks and will introduce some techniques which are a little different to the usual samplers such as Bargello, Sashiko, Trapunto, Folding etc!
The first block was the bargello block and I chose to use some of my stash of pinks and greens as these colours kept jumping into my cart when I was online shopping last year but I don't really have a project for them. Well, I didn't and now I do!
While I love the fabrics I used in this block, I should have used a solid or a contrasting fabric in there somewhere but overall, its a pretty block I guess! Oh well, live and learn!
Next week there are two more blocks, folding and scraptastic - sounds interesting, hope I can get them both done!
I received my December Quilting Block Swap Australia block this week from Jen in the USA:
That background fabric is almost psychedelic don't you think? Love it!
Well that's it for me! Time to fold the washing, blah!
Thanks for stopping by today,
