These are from the second Alexander Henry fabric. I actually have 110 of these blocks and this was the first day's worth!
I do love these "posies".
This is the beginning of the second batch from the fabric When I cut them from the fabric I had pinned for octagons, I have two sets of four. Here you can see them paired up as I try to make two different looking blocks. I have a lot more to go!!
This is the fabric for this second batch. I haven't pinned the octagons on the wall for picture taking yet! They have been done for some time.
My great quandary is what to do with these blocks. They look a little bright for large bed quilts and I like the individual blocks so much, seems there must be a better way to showcase them. I have been toying with totes, pot holders, hot pads or even some wall hangings!
Passacaglia is coming along, slowly but surely. It is going much much faster now that I am using a doubled thread instead of the single thread which kept coming unthreaded. Actually looks better also even though more thread.
