Only two ladies in our Birthday Block swap group have February birthdays. Chris's birthday is not until February 28, but since she lives in Australia, I need to get these in the mail much earlier than I normally would.
Chris's fabric color choices are black, grey, red, and white.
This first block is a Bonnie Hunter pattern called Ceiling Fan. Her directions made an 8 1/2" unfinished block so I just did the math and enlarged my pieces to make the needed 12 1/2" unfinished block.
The second block pattern is called Buzz Saw....
I don't recall ever working much with this color combination (if at all) and I find it very striking. In fact, I like it so much, and it's so different from colors I've ever used...I may just start making an extra odd block in these colors for myself as I experiment and make new block patterns.
We had a big snow storm yesterday and during the night, and it's still snowing. It's Saturday and I think I'm going to treat myself to a "sew-in weekend". :)
