Welcome to day 7 of the Tamarinis Blog Hop! Tammy is excited about her new Craftsy class on Creating Quick Quilted Gifts. The blog hop started on July 7 with Island Batiks, and each day since has had a different blog posting projects of Tammy's using Island Batiks.
Today is my day! Here are the beautiful fabrics that Island Batiks sent for my block.
My assignment was to make a flower block from Tammy's pattern Mary's Contrary Garden. My fabrics from Island Batik were fun to work with. I loved the purple fabric with the yellow flower print and thought it would look nice in the center of the flower. I made the flower with a darker center and went from dark to lighter fabrics.
Tammy's flowers are trimmed to square blocks. When I finished sewing my strips for the flower, I thought it could be an interesting hexagon block, so I trimmed my block this way. Hexagons are really popular right now and this method would be an interesting and quick way to make them.
There are only a few more days in the blog hop, so be sure and visit the other sites and enter the Island Batik drawing for fabric and Tammy's drawing for a free class!
Here’s the lineup -
