SewConnected January


I finally finished my block for SewConnected for January. It took me forever to make this block, and I am not sure why. It always takes me so much more time to make an improvisational block than using a pattern. I love the greens and browns she chose. Some of the fabrics are cotton and some are silk which gives it a luminosity that I love. I wanted to include a large swath of the green floral print because it is so pretty, but then it just seemed too big so I included the angles to add more movement. I am now caught up on my sewconnected blocks!

Awesome job, Audrey! It catches my eye every time I see it. I never would have thought of the diagonal breaks.
