Leona over at My Quilting Adventure recommended a great book during a blog hop post a week or so ago. It sounded like it might be just what I need to give me a different approach to creating my own blocks.
Remember this pile of blocks? I posted about the difficulties I was having due to the irregular size of the cut strips. My plan was to do as a couple of readers suggested and to stitch the blocks together without worrying about variable sizes and then trim them to straighten the edges without worrying about size or shape.
The arrival of this book: "Thinking Outside the Block" an hour or so ago has given me the desire to do a bit more than was suggested. This book is lovely, packed with ideas, illustrations and inspirations that make me want to take these blocks further. I can't wait to finish work, drag a few fabrics out of my stash, open the book and give these blocks a makeover.
