A bit late for the Six Inch Block of the Week, I normally manage a post on a Monday but it’s mega crazy at home being half term and a national lockdown so I’m a little bit behind in my making and writing! This week I am sharing with you a block with a name given by me The Look Block.
Named so for the set of arrows adorning the block and I have them all pointing up. So Look Up! You could also say things are looking up, the sun is sometimes shining, the days are getting longer, signs of spring everywhere. It won’t be long before the end of Winter!!
The source of the block comes from Tula Pinks City Sampler 100 block book. One which I bought back in 2018 to help me complete the 100 Days 100 Blocks challenge. I’ve not really revisited the book until this project because I still have my quilt top to baste and quilt! Some of the blocks however really interest me.
All of the blocks in Tula Pinks book have no name. The idea being that you write in the book as bit of a journalling experience as you create all the blocks. I didn’t do this with my quilt so this block lay unamed until today.
The Look Up Block it became and I have slightly adapted it to fit my fabric, Tula’ arrows are more to the left. I say arrows though, they are Flying geese!!
The Look Up Block
Lets start this how I have started every week so far, with my Alison Glass fabric and my scrappy stash fabric. I love how Flying geese with alternating colour works to create the shevron effect and centred like this on the block I really love.
The colours aren’t quite right for my liking but non the less I am happy.
My Second Set of blocks are Avery from Ruby Star Collective and from my Liberty Fabric collection.
All the florals make my heart sing! I haven’t owned a lot of floral fabrics until recently and they are really starting to grow on me.
As I go through this six inch block of the week project I am enjoying seeing how the different fabrics reveal themselves. sometimes they work and soemtimes they won’t.
I’m learning a lot about colour placement and block formation that will hopefully hold me in good steat for ongoing future projects. So here’s to the Look Up Block and roll on another week.
