July Blocks

OK,here I go with my first blog submission. YIKES! Let’s see what happens when I play with the buttons.
Here are my blocks, but first you have to read why I chose these particular blocks. I am an avid reader and have lately been following the exploits of Bennie Harper as written by Earlene Fowler. She has inspired me to pay attention to block patterns. Now Sophie has us choosing blocks. I ended up buying a book with 200 block patterns in 6 sizes. That should keep me busy for at least a year. So, between Earlene Fowler and Sophie egging me on, I have come up with two blocks in the Fool’s Puzzle pattern (1st book in the Bennie Harper series), two in the Irish Chain (2nd book) and 4 blocks in the 4 patch variation. I found the 4 patch pattern on my own and really like how it turned out,especially when you reverse the fabrics. Sophie, I think you should use that pattern for the lotto someday. Also, to explain my avatar: that is lil’ ole me and the mighty Pacific Ocean. I have an embroidered piece in my sewing room that says ” Please God help me,the sea is so wide and my boat is so small..” This photo makes that clear.
