Eclipse Block 3

Oh my!  There is no excuse for showing you indoor photos with poor quality light during summer.  Yet here they are.  I did not realize how yellow they were until I started uploading them for this post.  I promise to do better next time.

But here it is!  Block number three is finished.  Ta dah!  Soft pinks with a lovely pure green and LV prints as the background.  It's funny.  This is not my favorite block thus far, but it includes some of my favorite prints of all time.  Weird how that works.

In the center of the block you see two precious Heather Ross prints.  I thought this mini, which will eventually be hung on a wall, could be a great way to take these prints off of my shelf and incorporate them into my daily life.

Those gnomes!  Gah!

But this froggy fella is my absolute favorite in this block.  Look at his little google eyes!  Oh, the cuteness.  

All in all I'm starting to become more confident with this block.  I have fewer puckers, points line up a bit better and the curves are less of a struggle.  Number four will be aqua and purple.  I nearly have my fabrics pulled, but am procrastinating a bit as I am not sure the purple is THE purple.  Just needs a little mulling over.

Those Heather Ross prints would raise any block to a stellar level! And this one is stellar!!!

What a cute block, it looks like a lot of work.

Looks pretty perfect to me - some handstitching might add an element to it to make it one of your favourites in the end. Looking forward to your purple version!
