Another Block Party
Bottled Rainbows block for Amber in the Sew Fun Bee. She sent the block, already constructed, and a selection of fabrics and asked that we add the coordinating fabrics in ticker tape style. I have to say, the more I do this ticker tape method, the easier I find it. I nearly went crazy with the first one I did. Not so bad now. I added a couple of fabrics from my stash to give it some "local flavor". This block is huge - I think it measures 18" x 24", but it gives a nice large palette for the ticker tape fabrics. I'm fairly pleased with how this turned out. I really started without a plan at all, and just fit in the fabrics where they seemed to go together. I started in one corner this time. If I were to do it again, I might start in the center.
So, if I don't get drenched by TS Debby, I may try to get these to the Post Office today, along with my other weekend finishes. Thankfully, we're not getting the worst of it this time - just occasional heavy showers and gusty winds here. Pray for those folks in Central Florida who are getting far too much rain from this naughty girl.
