michele and heather
i was inspired by your 'birdie' fabric. it had such a light lacy feel that i wanted to try to achieve that in the block. i also thought a lot of white would show off these fabrics. i got a couple of little birdies in my piece so i fussy cut those for two of the corners. i think it'll look pretty sashed in the green. i don't make a lot of blocks like this, so it was definitely out of my comfort zone.
loved making your block. i agree that 16.5 inches is a big one. i hope you don't mind the addition of the katie jump rope and the amy butler dots.
i don't know if i can keep up with you guys. i've never been in a bee where blocks get done so quickly and fabric gets sent out early! you guys are amazing.
