This week I also prepared a block for my CQ Journal 2012. I was going to go for a monochromatic block (as I usually do) in red to keep with the colour of the month. But when I selected my fabric for the centre of my block (a scrap of silk tie), I changed my mind and decided to use colours from the silk piece for the block, this will be challenging to work with as I have so far almost always worked on blocks with just one colour. This is my "naked" block that I am still hoping to have time to embellish by the end of the month.
Finally, I also finished my framed hexie for Sue. Her criteria was that it should go with blue so I decided to stitch a little bird adapted from last year Birdie Stitches BOM and used a blue and yellow fabric for the frame. It will be flying to Australia on Monday. Hope it goes with her other blocks.
Until next time,
