Of course I posted the Catherine Gardens BOM file early, and of course many of you already found it...HERE
Here is a variation I made on April's block.
Rather than applique all of the stamens on the orange set, I used an embroidery chain stitch for the side two. I little french knot at the top finished them off.
I am loving all of the color ways. I have several finishing ideas - unique for each of my versions.
The dotty set got some fussy cutting. I decided I wanted my stripe petals to all orient in, so cut each separately. A little more work, but in this case worth it.
This 'stamen' print is also making an appearance in several leaf blocks. I love it!
The green is an Art Gallery fabric from their Paradise Collection.
In other blocks, I took some liberties fussy cutting rather than layering up colored circles.
This oval is from one of my favorite Kaffe fabrics that has been printed in numerous color ways. 'Milleflore'
Excuse my design wall. The flash caused the printing on the foam board to show through.
This is my yellow ground set. They won't be set this way. I still have not decided on the ground fabric. I know it will be green. All one green? Scrappy green?
Another stitcher started a yellow set, she found a wonderful Moda Bella solid called 'Mustard'. It is beautiful!
So many great choices!!
Since I decided to make several color ways of the blocks, I'm not caught up on the second and third colorways.
This is the dotty set.
I pulled these out of the notebook just for you to see. I have several basted up and ready for summer travel.
I'm using, blues, pinks, turquoise and a wonderful lime green. Also switching up some of the color placement in this set.
The orange set I went crazy basting on all the blocks and skipped around through the block sequence. I have some basting done on every block, I just didn't pull them out for you - yet.
Have you seen Karen's set? HERE, she posted all of her pink and brown blocks. She also has her ground pieces in place so you can see the flowers 'anchored'.
Have a great Week!
