Welcome to this week's Choose Your Own BlockAlong! I sure enjoyed seeing the blocks that Rene and Cindy made last week!! And I can't wait to see their newest blocks!
This past week was a challenge for me. Between work, family, and end-of-Summer colds running through the family, I wasn't able to even think about my blocks until Saturday. Fortunately for me, Tula Pink makes it easy to choose blocks based on available time ;-)
|Each block has the required number of fabrics and pieces.|
Needless to say, I chose blocks with very low numbers ;-)))
Both blocks were pieced using Cotton + Steel...my favorite!! I had some difficulty with the first block. I'll attribute my cutting and/or piecing errors to the cold medicine. It may end up as an orphan block, which is a shame as I ended up liking the mustard colored solid used.
Here are my four blocks placed on the City Sampler grid.
|My blocks look so lonesome...haha!!|
As more blocks are made, I will need to decide the layout I want to use. In the book, Tula provides 5 possible layouts. The number of blocks and setting fabrics vary according to the layout. I also need to be thinking about color choices for the blocks. So far I've been winging it ;-) I need to be making some decisions very soon!
Rene' was kind enough to make a button for our BlockAlong. Be sure and grab it from my sidebar if you want to play, which I hope you will.
And don't forget to head over to Rene' Creates and Live A Colorful Life to see their blocks for the week.
Thanks for stopping by!!
