F2F–Miss August

Month three, of the F2F swap, organised by Kate and Sue.  The lucky lady receiving blocks for August is Sue herself.  Her colour choice is orange and yellow on black, and her colour inspiration photo

And here are the blocks I made with these colours in mind.  First block is called Indiana Puzzle.

For the second block I simply did a chess board effect

And, for the third block, I made a Quatrefois block.

The print, in last photo, is a Kaffe Fasset which I bought especially for Sue’s blocks.  I love it ^^  For some of the other fabrics, I delved into my stash and used up some orange and yellow charm squares I’d been hoarding.

Anyway, I thoroughly enjoyed myself.  I don’t often sew using black fabric, and I have to say it looks even better in real life and really makes the bright colours pop.

You can see other participants blocks if you hop over the F2F2 gallery which Kate is keeping up to date, to show case our sewing.

  1. Great blocks Claire – love the Kaffe Fassett fabric. I have really found – doing this block swap both times – that I find myself liking colour combinations I didn’t think I would. Even if I wouldn’t use some of them myself due to not matching the rest of my home or whatever, it’s certainly broadened my (colour) horizons)
