I don’t know why the song from Sesame Street pops into my mind every time I look at my first blocks. The Yogi statue seems to be hanging his head in confusion.
I was going to stage some lovely backdrops to show off each block. Our adorable little fatty, Tippy, had arranged his bulk across most of the cutting table. As I pulled the book out from under him, I recognized how nice his sleek black fur would show off the colors in the blocks. So now I present the blocks from the first week, complete with kitty background.
Here is Becky, with her cacophony of prints and colors. I am using the foundation paper piecing method for my blocks. While not necessary for the straightforward blocks like Becky, I actually like to paper piece. I do it whenever I have a chance! And no, I am not aware of any help groups for this particular affliction.
Bonnie found me in a much different mood fabric-wise. I love these prints together.
When the Aunt block came up next, it sent me back to the drawing board for the center fabric. I’ve chosen small prints for most of my fabrics, and could not find anything that I wanted to fussy cut for the center. So that little cowboy dude is going to be a one-off. Or is he…
I love the delicate way that 20 pound cat is modeling the blocks. They grow up so fast.
