In the end, who cares? I will carry on. As you can see, I still have not properly re-adjusted my scrappy border and instead have just started to piece my next border. I have fallen in love with these little fussy cut square in a square blocks. These finish at 4 inches and are paper pieced. It takes me no time to whip one up, so I am sewing little blocks when walking by the sewing room, between dinner and the dishes, etc. Having such a nice, quick, easy, rewarding block has been wonderful.
Do we like this? Or no? Too busy? They can always go on the back....
And what do you think of the LV scrappy look? I'm trying my hardest, but really stunk at it last time. Is it working this time?
This is my first time fussy cutting fabric. It is awfully wasteful and I am not entirely convinced it is worth it, but for these blocks its a necessity. Want to see some of my favorites?
And, of course, a bit of Heather Ross. These are the only two prints I have of hers. Both are incredibly special to me as I'm a big camper and little frogs/tadpoles have a special place in my heart. I nearly wish I made the entire border out of fussy cuts from these two prints, but it is too late now!
