August BOM 2013 Alternative Block

What you will need

  • I wanted something different in my quilt besides the basket. This is a very simple block but I needed something very simple this month. I will do the basket later and use it in a wall hanging.

Q&A with Rosiecat

I really like your alternate August block. It does seem to fit better than our scheduled basket block. I guess I'll have to figure that out when I get there. :0) Thanks for sharing!

Thank you.

Thank you.
Ladybev asked:
I really like your alternative block too. I am making the basket for the learning curve, but think the basket leaves too much negative space above it compared to the others. I'll be doing the " shuffle" laying these blocks out. Having a hard time wrapping my head around all the imbalance. Too many piecing background slivers. Well, it is what it is. Yours looks great I must.say.

It's been a fun BOM just anxious to get it all finished.
