Ok, I didn’t want to have to make a second block again, so I was very careful with my fabric choices. I tried to make sure I chose smallish patterns and happy colors. And thus, it begins….
Again, lots of line drawing on the backs of all the 2.5″ squares, but we’re used to this by now, aren’t we, people? Using different colors than those in the pattern, or at least in different PLACES in the pattern makes for some confusion. Especially with this one, where that whole balloon is made up of them! Good golly!
I did not like the basket fabric, once I got this mostly sewn. So I switched it out. (This green is one that gave me fits in the reject ice cream sundae block, it may have to GO.) I’m much happier with my second choice, even though it makes my block look all “matchy matchy.” I don’t care about that at this point.
What? You want to know why that bow is there? It’s covering up a Huge error.
Here’s another idea I had, to avoid unsewing…..
Then I did this. (hee hee hee)
They’re just glued on for now. I will be putting something there to cover that up, just not totally decided on what. I couldn’t find rick rack, to use as kind of a kite tail….might need to pick some up and try that.
And here’s the whole enchilada!
I’ve found that I really only like the vertical apron block. The rest of them aren’t faves. I love all the horizontal blocks, especially the puppy one.
So after I finished the balloon, I made a couple more Scrappy Trip blocks. I can usually get two completely finished in 15 minutes, so I made two.
And don’t those look like olives, up in the top one?
It’s just always fun.
