Shenandoah Botanical February Update

I have two blocks done for the Shenandoah Botanical quilt and both are tulip blocks.  I did not refer back to the first one when I cut out parts for the second and find that I used the same pink and yellow in both and a duplicate green.    I should have at least selected a different pink and yellow but I am not going to change anything on the blocks.




I have been busy with company but now our guest is gone.  I will be back to doing lots of applique.

Both of these tulip blocks are beautiful!
They look very different even though you used a few of the fabrics in both blocks.

Lovely blocks. Especially like the brown background, just for a change!

Dawn said...

So pretty! I thinking brown ground gives them a rich earthy garden look.

Well, you must really like those fabrics. : )
They look very soft and pretty against the brown. Such beautiful work!

They are both lovely ! I don't think that it matters that they are both the same...I look at it as if they came from the same package of bulbs when you planted them :)

Ramona said...

Great blocks! I can understand why you chose the same fabrics for both blocks...the fabrics are so fresh and "springy"....perfect for tulips.

I think both are beautiful! Your background really makes the yellow and pink sing. So rich!

They're darling, and different enough you don't really notice the same fabrics. I don't know how you keep all your projects straight!

Lori said...

Both blocks are gorgeous even if they use the same fabric!!

Cathy said...

Sue said...

They might be the same fabrics but they look so different :-D
Just lovely blocks with the brown background .

Karen said...

The brown background is wonderful. Will they all be the same?

Both blocks are so pretty. I'm sure I've said it before but I love that dark brown background! It will make for a stunning quilt.

Beautiful blocks Karen, you must have picked the same colors because they look so pretty together.

Lovely blocks Karen.
Even with the same fabrics they look very different because of the placement.

I think it will blend well and all will think you had a great idea in selecting the colors and reversing them! Of course I have been there done that with projects. Sometimes it is best to just forge ahead. Pretty blocks.
