They were still kind of bland. Blocks like these usually get trimmed down a good bit, and that will help, but I decided to see if I could take it a little further.
In the photo below, the block in the upper left corner was not one of the original set. I made it after I had been playing with sticks for several hours. Basically I started out with a chunk of the light blue, cut it in half, and then inserted strips in each half before sewing them back together again.
I also layered two prints, sliced through them to make two freestyle nine patch blocks, and then decided to spice them up a bit before I reassembled them.
a whole day to sew! YIPPEE! congrats on that! these are so fun! I love that your just letting it happen... just play more, and it will tell you what you need to do... follow you instinct!
These all look great! Love those sticks.
Your blocks remind me of Pick-up Sticks, which I still enjoy playing. So fun!
Love them all! Combine the two lots of sticks and you'll have a 'cats in the wood' quilt!
Nice! Looks like a fun & productive sewing day!
These are all so fun. I love the cats peeking out. Charlotte's idea would be cool.
Wow! Great blocks...I love them!
