Design a block fabric

I’m participating in the Design a block Challenge at 15 minutes play. Basically we’ll be making an 8” square from scraps which we’ll then transform into a 12” block any way we want to.

Going through some of my scraps I found these fabrics.
They are quite moody which match my current state of mind perfectly. Sometimes all the drama that comes with being a human being existing on this planet with other human beings is very unsettling, especially when you have no part in the production and are just a part of the audience. You can stress about it or make your peace with it; that’s it; your choice. Yeah, I need colour, fresh air, a little no sugar added sweet stuff, a few hours with my favourite daughter/grandson team and husband to come home from the other side of the world. Feeling better already.-)

  1. Sometimes these states of mind let us make the most beautiful things. I hope the presence of your little family can cheer you up!

  2. Throw a little of your red or orange in there and it will radiate your fun personality, just like the closeness of family lights up a home.

  3. Think pink.
    Fun to come to you and lots of sweetness.
    Enjoy the family.

  4. What an interesting experience you'll have gone through when you have finished your block. I'm curious to see the final result!

  5. Moody and introspective are good sometimes, going in brings new things out. xox Corrine
