I got back from my mini vacation a few days ago, and I’ve finally finished unpacking, doing laundry, and settling back into my home routine. I’ve made the latest Road Trip block, Illinois. I really like how this block radiates from the centre.
My dark block looks very reminiscent of a Shoo-fly block to me. I didn’t bother with any fussy cutting for these ones. I wanted the simplicity of the geometric shapes to really stand out. I used the same basic orange print in the two blocks, and it’s amazing how its value changes depending on the fabrics around it. I love it when colour does that.
I’m starting to get quite the collection here! I should probably make a few more of the blocks in the larger 15″ size so that the one big one doesn’t look out of place. A few of the blocks coming up are a little more complex, so they should lend themselves well to that.
It’s turning out really well so far, I think. I’m really glad I decided to join in on this QAL. And it felt really good to sew something again, after my mini vacation.
