Floribunda - week 5

I'm not sure I like this block very much -- way too many HSTs to trim, and I didn't see the point of having the HSTs in the middle! I do like the fabrics I picked out of the depths of my stash, though, so I may do a few more of the 12" blocks in this theme.

the fabric you used for your rectangles is scrumptious! Like you I'm finding all those HST a little excessive...

I think it's stunning!

Nice contrast in fabrics and I love that green marble fabric. Very striking.

I love the way these colours work together and the fabric in the rectangles gives it great movement.

Wow. Reversing the rectangle pointy parts makes this block so graphic. And your fabrics are great. Nice job.

Great fabrics. I rarely exactly follow the directions at quilterscache. I made a solid square in the middle instead of HSTs. And I guess since you reversed the dark pieces, you don't follow them exactly, either. I love your block.

Nice fabrics. I like the look of the chevrons turned the other way. I almost never follow the instructions on quilterscache.
