I was asked to make two blocks for a special project my friend Trisha Frankland is working on. Along with a block tutorial of the block I show below these were my instructions:
Your 3 fabrics can be any combination of lilac, powder blue, and pale mint green and think shabby chic print combinations: floral, dots, small checks. Fabric A – 4 quantity 4” squares Fabric B—2 quantity 4” squares Fabric C—2 quantity 4” squares, plus 1 quantity 1.5” square Your neutral can be white or cream, but very pale —solid or print, white-on-white, shirting. White—8 quantity 4” squares, plus 4 quantity 1.5” x 5.5” strips
Now – as many of you know – these are not typical colors or fabrics that I use when I make quilts. It was really fun to search for the perfect fabrics to use. This is the first block I came up with. And the second one! The mint green in this one is a Cotton N Steel basic and it has gold accent on top! I LOVE this fabric! I’ll show more pictures of what Trish does with these blocks as the project progresses.
