Thanks to an extra-busy week and weekend I’m behind-hand with my aim to finish a block a week this week. I’m not sure when that became an aim, though! The people who set me off doing quilting would tell me off because it’s supposed to be a relaxing hobby! This is another one using some of my favourite fabrics (the leaves and berries in the middle, the stripey one, and the one with the brown background). I’m pleased I managed to incorporate some brown and green fabrics, to make it compatible with some of the other blocks I’ve made. Also pleased to have incorporated one which I bought online and feared I’d never use, as viewed as a whole piece it looks a bit too much like camouflage but with a particularly lime shade of light green (the small patterned triangles in the flying geese). I don’t know how much more of it I’ll use, but at least it’s in there!
Well, it’s a bit eye-poppingly bright, but you can’t miss what season it’s meant to represent! (Except for the sunflowers, maybe). Had to get the foxes in somewhere. I liked the fabric when I saw it online but didn’t realise how citrussy the background is. Given how much of a mish-mash the whole thing is, what’s a bit of bright green foxy fabric in the scheme of things, anyway?
I love the ‘barley mouse’ fabric I used for the centre square and in the middle of each side of the outer edge of the block, it’s really cute! Because it’s got orange/brown autumn leaves on it too (seen on the outside edge) it blends well with some of my other fabrics, and it’s good to get purples and oranges in one block to tone with some of the others. I also like the rosehips on it too, very seasonal. I’m glad I bough half a metre and not just a fat quarter.
