I used the purple from my "Pop" fat eight pack from Timeless Treasures. I just love these fabrics. Amy at Sew Incredibly Crazy did a great job on the design and the instructions. Hop on over and check it out.
In case you missed the applique block from yesterday, you can read about it here.
I'm also giving my children something to talk about in 50 years. I mis-cut 4 of my pieces of my background fabric and didn't have enough to re-cut them so I had to piece them. I could have scrapped the whole thing and started over but I hated to waste the fabric and the time spent to that point. I didn't realize it until I was too far into the block. I'm sure they'll look at the quilt with this block in it and wonder was mom that frugral that she had to piece the pieces or what was she thinking! Then they'll laugh because they'll know it's hard to tell what mom was thinking!
Since I was working on the In Our Garden blocks and working with the "Pop" fabric, I decided to go ahead and piece my pieced block for the hop. My month isn't until April and that's a long time to keep something secret. So how about a sneak peak at my fabrics.
Oh the block turned out so pretty. I want to show it to you so bad!
