The block this month is Sunbonnet Baby. I don't think anyone will be surprised that I did not make the Sunbonnet Baby block. It just would not work. Instead I went to Blockbase and looked for another block with "baby" in the name. That led me to Baby Basket. I should have studied it a bit before selecting it!
The shibori version is just fine.
This, however, is complete and total crap! :) It required 10 fabrics and that's just too many to get any sort of design flowing in the block. I considered making another but I know that I will not use all of the blocks in my quilt so I've decided to move on. If I need another block for the quilt I'll make it later. You can bet that this one will never see the light of day again.
This should have been a hint.
This project has been such a great exercise for me. I've learned so much about fabric selection and creating focus lines. It's really going to help when I get back to making kaleidoscope blocks. Because of that I don't mind having a disaster or 5.
The block this month is supposed to be Coffee Cup but I just could not see doing that one so I searched Blockbase for a block with "cup" in the name. I found Cups and Saucer and liked it and I like it in both versions.
I love the shibori version and really do not love the symmetry version. This block doesn't lend itself to symmetry. I tried for a swirl effect but that wasn't so successful. Oh well, you win some and you lose some!
