Chrissy, at Sew Lux, is our bee mama this month in the Modern Stitching Bee. She has requested the Four Acres block from the Modern Block book. It was a great choice as you get a big bang with very little effort...kind of like a D9P block.
Chrissy asked for one block on a white background with pink, aqua and orange piecing and a central brown cross. She requested either tone on tone prints or colored fabric with a white pattern and specifically mentioned she has a soft spot for polka dots. It was an interesting challenge, but much to my surprise I could find pieces to suit her request in my stash. What luck!
For the second block we were free to choose any colors we wanted so long as we stuck to the tone one tone or polka dot theme. I really like the Echo aqua in here and the green polka doted prints. They make me happy. For some reason my brain was stuck on the brown central cross from the last block. Even though Chrissy gave us freedom, I just never shifted in my brain to choose another color for the middle. Stinker.
In the end, Chrissy seems happy and they appear to fit well with the other blocks in the flickr group. I hope she can use them...they will be out in the post shortly!
