The Square Deal Block Two

March 05, 2012

Hello I have been busy making the next block. The Square Deal block is very interesting and has more then one way of placing your colour arrangements to create different looks. Take a look at the variations I have done with this block. For my mock up versions I have used the Sweet Emilie range designed by Jo Morton. The possibilities are endless. I have also been playing around with colour selections for this block. In my colour selection I have selected various fabrics from the same colour to give my block more interest and depth. Take a look at my selections for this block.   I have a few blue fabrics in this mixture although they may not be suitable, I thought they may make it an interesting look. I hope you have fun choosing your fabrics for this lovely block. Happy Stitching Sharon
