A BOY AND A GIRL, AN ALBUM block # 6
The next cross spray block, I chose blue and pink for the corner large elements, but choosing 4 different colours would work really well also. There was no reason for choosing the colours I did, I liked the fabrics!
Pull out 8 fabrics for the main elements and work the leaves in a colour that goes with them. The central petals were fussy cut from the Paper Fan fabric of long ago, but this fabric is coming back in the summer, I'm so happy to hear that as the fabric is really useful. Think of the hexagons or the stars you can do with it.
The blocks have 1" sashings in various Shot Cotton colours, so the total measurement of the block with sashings is 22" x 22", and with 9 blocks and the 12" border, the quilt has a finished measurement of 90" x 90". Be back tomorrow with the next block, K
