FW73: Mrs Taft & FW74: Mrs Thomas
This week turned out great. I am completely up to date! Horray! I enjoyed both blocks this week. They are yet again, a bit of a disco, but I have given up trying to work out my colours and balance. I am just making a mishmash and hoping for the best. Either it will hurt my eyeballs or it will all come together perfectly when balanced with all the white sashing. Who knows?
Mrs Taft block
I wasn't that into this block, I toyed with the idea of dropping it, it just seemed a little basic and duotone. Then I thought about what could make it more to my liking and I so I decided to use it as an opportunity to use some of my favourite fabrics all together.
I am really pleased with the result. It has become one of my favourites.
Mrs Thomas block
This block took quite a long time to make as there were so many bits but it was pretty straight forward. I even listened to Kerry's advice about cutting my triangles out four at a time. I feel very virtuous.
