Welcome everyone! I'm honored to be part of the block-a-palooza, and I'm so happy you're here! Waiting for Spring is right, Houston could be getting 3" of snow today; that's a little wacky. By the way, I LOVE THIS FABRIC!!!
Before we get too deep into my block, I need to tell you that the dog ate my homework no, but thieves did break into my house, stole my computer & camera (among other things), and on my computer & camera were my step by step photos of my block. So dear sweet Julie digitally created my block...thank you! The digital diagrams show generic colors, but you can see from the photo, which fabrics were used.
