hello and happy blockhead Wednesday. I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy during this crazy time. Today more than ever I am so thankful for my family and friends that I have met through quilting.
Today’s block is designed by Joanna of Fig Tree and Co. The block is named Summer Breeze and can be found on Joanna’s blog, here.
Each week I take a pic of my block with some trinkets or treasures. This week I grabbed some of the spools from my Aurifil thread collection including a few spools of Joanna’s floss gift box collection. The colors are so yummy and are a perfect addition to wool embroidery.
Stock #JF12FW10- ask for it at your favorite retailer.
I pieced each of the 4 units and then played with what layout I wanted. The navy was the darkest and had the most weight so I put them in the middle and went with the third option for my block. How are you coming on your blocks? I am a bit behind on some of projects including 2 of the blockheads blacks. Like many of you I have been making masks and will be working on making masks for a local charity. So glad I can put my skills to good use, more on that later.
