Well here it is Wednesday and now I can unveil my latest block. It has been really great seeing the fantastic array of blocks and if you haven't yet won your own copy please leave your name below for yet another chance. If you are listed as anonymous please note I won't be able to track you down if you are the winner. So please log in somehow; via your own blog or webmail addy are usually the easiest ways.
Now the block above is my final block. I had originally planned for the outer green to be the same as the inner green but unfortunately miscalculated how much fabric those outer sections needed.
My original plan was to make the block in colours similar to the layout just above and to the left but couldn't find the right yellow for the background. Yes I know it doesn't look yellow on the web, but in real life that is yellow. I included the layout on the right just to show you the difference colour can make.
My third layout was my first plan for the medallion layout. This one would be perfect for someone who likes applique with all those open spaces near the middle. However as I personally don't do applique it would be the design I am least likely to use.
Btw if anyone wants to try any of these three layouts you will need to increase the block by 200%. The extra part blocks in the first two layouts are regular size.
And if you, like myself, have way too many UFOs but still want to try out this block why not make a table runner. Three full blocks plus two quarter blocks with a small border makes a table runner a bit under 50inches in length and approximately 16in wide. Perfect for Xmas..... just had a thought check back later.. say tomorrow and I should have uploaded a Xams table runner for those who like red and green that is.
Anyway back to the important thing... leave your name so you can be in the draw for your own copy of Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Issue 6. Good luck.
