Craftsy Block of the Month 2013

with Laura Nownes

  • My inspiration fabric was the butterfly print on black. Pulled numerous pieces from my stash
  • and have bought a couple pieces plus some tone on tone black. Thinking I want that to be the background. This is going to be fun:)

Q&A with Laurie-CA

mpac5000 asked:
Your blocks are really pretty. You may want to wait and see how the rest of the blocks come together before you redo then. What color are you using for your background fabric? that will make a big difference too.
Laurie-CA answered:
My intention is to use tone on tone blacks for the background. I just loved the butterfly print so I wanted to use that for the color inspiration. I did do another one with the narrow strips black, I'll look at it again in the morning and see what I think. Thanks for the input.
kim-the-girl asked:
Wondering if you've decided which of these you're going to use? I really like choice #2 better on its own, but when you paired choice #1 with the February blocks is balances it quite nicely!
Laurie-CA answered:
Kim, I haven't decided yet. I am using the butterfly print with the black background through out the quilt so I am leaning toward the first one. But I don't have to make a decision until it's time to put the top together so they are both an option. Thanks for your input:)
