Homespun BOM: Signature Chain
There is nothing like waiting until the last minute to do the bl0ck for the next meeting of my mini group. I worked away on this yesterday, slaving away I tell ya!
Actually, this was a very easy block to do, I was able to complete both blocks in a matter of hours. Once again, the block is from Marcia Hohn's Quilter's Cache. There was one missing measurement, tho. If you are playing along cut that large rectangle for the 12" block at 4.5"x8.5" and for the 6" block cut at 2.5"x4.5". Got that?
Now wouldn't this make a lovely label? That's how I plan to use it. And I think I'll just incorporate this into the front of the quilt and not relegate it to the backside. How fun is that? Add a bit of freezer paper to the big rectangle and then a pen drawing/doodle along with the quilt info and it's done.
That is such a bad photo, but that one really dark fabric is a micro homespun check in black and dark green. I found it in my stash. Perfect!
