I haven’t let my indecision stop my progress. I am carrying along and will make decisions as I go. I just HAD to make this block when I saw it.
This is block #405 Winged Square found on page 37 of 5,500 Quilt Block Designs. I added two new fabrics into the mix in this block, DS Quilts Fairgrounds Modern Texture Yellow and some Anna Maria Horner.
I felt like I should make a couple less complicated blocks to balance the quilt design so I made this one from page 15, #71 Zig Zag Pat.
I like how the navy Kona appears to be holding the viewfinder fabric. I also introduced Metro Living Circles in this block.
For another simply constructed block, I chose #53 Old Bear’s Paw from page 14. I decided to live dangerously here and move the fussy cut to the lower right and mix things up a little. I used Kona Mustard for the claws and Heath in Tomato by Alexander Henry for the paw. I’m not in love with this block so it will likely find it’s way to a pieced backing. I do, however, like the fabric combinations so I will use them on another block asap.
