I was excited to see that Rachel posted the first block tutorial over on her blog
. My Meadowsweet fabrics have just been itching to be cut into. For these two blocks I decided to add in some of Amy Butlers Full Moon Polka dots from her Lotus line as well as a fabric from Sandi Henderson’s Farmer’s Market line(the orange print up there). The other two fabrics are from Sandi’s Meadowsweet line & the cream fabric is Kona Cotton in Snow.
On another note, you can really tell how much I use my cutting mat up there. =) It is my most used birthday present ever. So handy, it’s 33″ x 58″–so, I never need to fold my fabric to cut it. Paired with my 36″ ruler, cutting fabric is a dream. I use a smaller ruler for small pieces of fabric but, the longer one is perfection for long cuts of fabric. I heart it. =) Anyhoo, on to my blocks…
I love the color red so, the first block was right up my alley:
I think the polka dot really compliments the red daisy fabric–love those two together!
And, you really can’t go wrong with orange and turquoise which is what I chose for my second block:
I think I’m off to a pretty good start–looking forward to the next block tutorial!
