It's March and the excitement increases with each new Aurifil Block! I'm SO addicted to samplers.. just can NOT get enough of them.
Our designer for March is the super cute Emily Herrick of Crazy Old Ladies! she is not old.. or Crazy... well.. maybe a WEE BIT crazy.. wink! I want to share my fabric selecting for block 3 and a TIP.. are you ready?
First I have my tip. I hightlight the cut sizes as they are different widths
This way I don't accidently cut them wrong.. at least that is the plan.
Now to audition!
I lay out the fabric in the block order.. here is opt 1
I wanted to use the bobbins as a single row...
But since I didn't want to FORCE them to work.. I tried a different layout with the zig zag as the skinny border.
And Option 3.. I ended up with Option 3. I love the zig zag, and wanted to 'frame' out the daisy in the center with orange
I laid the strips out to sew... mmmmm... I see something amiss!
Two of those orange sides are a Tiny bit too BIG!
My awesome march Aurifil block
And the whole famly!
