Here are the four blocks I chose for my daughter's new potholders. The pieces are cut out but not sewn together yet.
This is "Anvil." Used just two colors for this one and am happy with the way it looks. The red print was one of her favorite fabrics so I wanted to showcase it.
The "Brave World" block. There aren't too many blacks in 30s prints but I really like this black and white polka dot and the geometric print with black in it.
This block would make a great baby quilt! It's "Road to Heaven" and I stayed with all reds for it.
"Southern Belle." Uh-oh. It's not doin' it for me. Could be my choice of fabrics or placement of color. Nope, I don't think I like the block well enough to try it with different fabrics. I'll sew it together though just to make sure.
After I got all four blocks pieced, I knew "Southern Belle" had to go. I cut and pieced another block I had originally been considering.
Okay! This is "Castles in Spain" and I like it a lot. The black print with small flowers looks very homey, very kitchen-y to me.
Here are all five blocks I made, but I did jettison "Southern Belle." I'll continue on with the four; Anvil, Brave World, Road to Heaven, and Castles in Spain substituted for (blech) Southern Belle.
Back to the sewing machine.
