Some Kinda Foot !

I really didn't like the "FlyFoot" pattern , so I didn't do it...exactly . The pattern probably looks really good in a "multiples" setting, where the pinwheel legs would join up to create a secondary pattern, but I didn't like the way the single block looked at all. I wanted to use one of my Victorian florals, so I used a really bland beige for the focus and turned the corners in on themselves... sort of looks like a fortune cookie, I thought.

This was supposed to be "Cross and Crown", but I changed it out a bit; I think it looks a bit like a Celtic Cross. Since I added the extra blue border, the chain kind of looses itself and the Stone Henge-y gold parts kind of pop out. Part of that is beause I reversed the blue and gold sides strips on the sides as well. It really is amazing what we can do when we are not paying very close attention to directions, isn't it??? LOL.

I love the idea of a block pattern being a guideline or suggestion! You did a great job of making them your own :-)
