Ok everyone, here we go!!! FINALLY, right? Feels like we've been talking and waiting and anticipating for months. Probably because we were. tee hee
So let's just jump right in.
As I mentioned before, Atsuko Matsuyama designs fabric for Lecien and she came out with a new Old/New 30s collection specially for the publication of the English version of her book, including a cheater panel that replicates some of the blocks in the quilt.
Original Block #1
Her fabric designs are feedsack-inspired, as the name of her collection reflects, so there are lots of very bright colours. I made these first two blocks with this new collection, which is in stores this month.
Original Block #2
First I made this one (quite a while ago ...)
But then I made this one when I recieved the new Lecien fabric. Now I can't decide which one I like best. Kinda loving the hot pink flower above, but also kinda loving the blue greenery below. Thoughts?
If you're posting on Instagram, remember to #happyflowerqal so we can all admire your lovely blocks too! As I hinted before, there will be some giveaways throughout this QAL and I believe winners will be chosen from all the posts that are hashtagged with "happyflowerqal". Just sayin'. ;)
