My garden path

Posted by on June 13, 2011 in blocks | 5 comments

This looks more like my vision if the photo is rotated 90 degrees. This is a very tentative and incomplete first try at a layout of a portion of the stack blocks that I was lucky to win in January. Many of the stacks had floral motifs and/or little critters (dragonflies, etc), so it got me to thinking of a garden path, and I have a little collection of Kaffe Fassett prints, so I made snowball blocks of the big florals, with three paths surrounding the two “beds” of flowers. (please disregard the bare toes on the stool). I’ll add a strip of white sashing at the bottom & top of each flower row, and maybe do a green leafy border around the whole thing (I have some Michael Miller green fern fabricd that might work. I welcome comments and thank all your contributions. I also have a few corners to add to the flowers.
