Somebody stop me! I need to be working on Studio 180 Design class samples. But I just had to make one more One Block Wonder. This great fabric is Brazilia by Alexander Henry. I wanted to try a different design approach.
I like the unevenness. Once I sewed the blocks together I bound the uneven edge with a burgundy fabric. I then laid the blocks over the original fabric and adjusted it until it was in a position I liked. I sewed the two together and then squared up the top.
It is a very subtle edge, but I like the way the original fabric flows into the blocks.
Here is a close up of where the original fabric meets the blocks.
I chose another tropical bird fabric for the backing.
You know, no quilt it complete without a label.
