Vicki's Week 30 & Week 31

Here's week 30 - Hearth & Home

And week 31 - Queen Charlotte's Crown

I'm finally doing a bit of catching up and the easiest was to do the 10" blocks since my plan was to make all the 10" blocks with the turquoise, mottled pink batik and the dark indigo floral outline fabrics. So at least I didn't have to spend time thinking about what fabrics to pick. I had to make a few modifications to these two blocks since the original patterns only called for 2 colours of fabric. Both went together fairly easily and visually are interesting. I think the next time there is another 10" block I will have to gather all of these blocks and take a picture of them to see how they look together.

By the way it's been quiet here at the FBP this weekend and for those who are not from Canada, it was a long weekend here so that probably in part explains the lack of activity over the last few days.

Trying desperately to catch up but sewing machine has 'died'.
Love the block, very clever to introduce another colour.
