Darci's Blocks

I had a lot of fun making Darci's block. I decided to make a wonky log cabin and just go with the flow.

I added some white, pink and green gingham to the fabrics Darci sent and a little bit of ric rac.
Hmmm. One minute I love it the next I think it is too much.

I had some problems with the turquoise in the flower fabric as it was quite overpowering in a block. So I didn't use it in this block. Sorry Darci. It just wasn't quite gelling with the other fabrics.

So I decided to make a more simpler block using the turquoise flower fabric.

This time I added the green stripe, pink stripe, pink and little pink leaves from my stash. I think it worked well to tone the turquoise down and keep the pink and green theme.

I hope you like the blocks Darci. They will be winging their way to Tina on Monday.

I love their mellow look. Compared to mine, anything would be mellow.

I didn't know we could add, otherwise I would have had a completely different idea. I had the perfect fabric.

I know what you mean about one minute you love it, the next you don't. That's how I feel about mine.

Hi Natasha - thanks for dropping by my blog. I absolutely love the fabrics you sent Mrs Moogs, and from having a good look through your blog it turns out I love the fabrics you use full stop! It's lovely to meet a fellow fabric addict - your work is just lovely.

Take care :-)

I love them! So don't worry the wonky log cabin (the first one) is my absolute favorite.
