Block Party Fabric March 16, 2009

I have finally decided on my block party fabric and here is a very very bad picture of it.

It is actually the prettiest of minty pistashio green and the heart flowers are subtle grey and white.  I spent ages trying to ‘second guess’ what the others would do with a fabric but then decided (as a very wise lady once told me) that I just needed to start with a fabric that I loved and the other clever ladies would do the rest.  I’m sure she is right and I kept going back to this fabric time and time again.

I have now cut it up to the big squares according to instructions ( I hope) as carefully and as precisely as I could and now it has gone off to the lovely block party swap goddess who is organising this extravaganza. I hope I have done it right and that it is good enough to go out to all the others.   I am so grateful because already I am learning heaps about cutting and organising the squares.  Goodness knows how much I will have learned by the end of it.  This is such a good opportunity to learn about the whole process, step by step and with the opportunity to try different approaches to the craft.  I am really looking forward to matching all the other fabrics that will come my way – of course I don’t really have a stash to dive in to but it will give me a good opportunity to compare the fabrics with a wide range in the store before making my decision.  I feel really pleased that I am travelling down this path and whilst my crocheting and knitting is suffering somewhat – it is a great path to be on at present.
