No color theme ... I think the rest of my blocks will be done all higgledy piggledy.
Block #96 - Tulip
There's a very good reason I haven't made this block sooner ... I just.don't.get.it. I admit it. Where, exactly, is the tulip? I mean, yes the 2 parallelograms in the middle can be interpreted as the blossom, but I don't get the rest of it.
And the asymmetrical fabric choices in the book?
I don't get it.
I always thought I'd find a way to assign order and balance ... but I'm as surprised as you are that I ended up going all PICASSO with my version too!
This is not like me at all. (Although I couldn't stop myself from at least putting green along the bottom for leaves.)
And I'm even more astonished that I like my tulip!
Block # 84 - Spool
For such a simple block, it caused me a lot of anxiety.
Until I noticed this print in my stash (that I've only used for the gingham and a few wreaths) ...
and got the idea to make my spool look like it had eyelet lace wrapped around it.
I'm really happy with how it turned out.
