Q&A with Omentide

mpac5000 asked:
Your blocks are wonderful. doing the Block of the Month helps me a lot and also pushes me to get other projects done.
Omentide answered:
Thank you. I am looking at everyone else's and thinking what a mess mine are so it is great to have encouragement!
dkaym asked:
What a modern group! I can't wait to see what you do next.
Omentide answered:
Thank you. I'm working with what I can get locally. I think I may do more of the yellow centres as they worked better than the black ones.
Di4N4 asked:
Good for you! I think "Just do it" is a perfect approach. I did the BOM last year, and it really helped my confidence with technique. Keep up the good work!!! :)
Omentide answered:
Thanks. I am not sure my fabric choices worked. May try again with less stripes.

Yummy fabrics, looking forward to following your progress. Judy in Phx, AZ
Omentide answered:
Thank you. I have no idea where our remnant man gets his fabric. I found an elephant print in the middle of one piece!
2626shirl asked:
Love your fabrics.
Omentide answered:
Thank you. I think it looks better with the yellow in the middle... And, apart from the yellow, this was all remnants from our local market.
