BOM June blocks

Project Description

What are you most proud of? Framing the pretty flower fabric with dark fabric, taking the original Greek Cross pattern into a different direction. There would not have been sufficient contrast otherwise. As a bonus, it allows me to stretch the flower fabric for which I am running low, only half way into the BOM program. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Do not hesitate to customize any block in a way that better suits the fabric combination or simply your taste!

What you will need

  • Quilting fabrics from my stash.

Q&A with Diane C Cote

Toadflax asked:
I love your fabric choices for this.
Diane C Cote answered:
Thank you. I bought these fabrics some 5 years ago when I took my first Quilting course. I never finished the Sample Quilt because I was sewing it all by hand, so I decided to complete it through the BOM. I now have a sewing machine, thank goodness!
Boxinggirl asked:
Love the nice crisp color choices here
Diane C Cote answered:
I am very pleased with this block indeed. Thank you.
shasmom asked:
Your color choices are lovely. It is going to be so pretty when it is finished!
Diane C Cote answered:
Thank you. I hope Amy tells us how we will assemble the blocks. It would help managing the colour choices for the remaining blocks.
double d asked:
I love the way you framed that center print. It gives the block a great new look.
Diane C Cote answered:
Thank you. I needed to introduce the contrast. Otherwise, the block would have looked "washed-out".
