Blue Flags

I am sharing a photo of my Blue Flags block for the Shenandoah Valley Botanical Quilt sew-along.  I like the little blue check fabric I used.    I think the next block will have the alternating block fabric for the background.


If you have time, pay a visit to the main blog page for the sew-along.  Quite a variety of fabrics and styles being used by the participants.  Click on here.

I am still deciding on background fabric. But better late than never. I used a little red check in a leaf for my trailing vines this week and those checks add so much interest don't they. The dark background really changes the look of the block.

Jeanna said...

It is amazing how different everyone's blocks look in such a variety of fabrics. I love your blue fabric in your petals.

I also love the check fabric and the other blue you have used positively glows. Unfortunately I have found it hard to find check fabrics.

I am so enjoying watching these blocks pop up in Blogland. Great job on this one.
