6 more patchwork bocks

here are the next 6 Tula Pink blocks. I forgot to put last week`s onto my blog  although I loaded them onto the site so have last and this weeks to share with you today.

I have been busy,  on friday I did 12 blocks but holding them back until I have to add them to the challenge.



this is a bit of a mish mash with the colours, never mind I am learning all the time


think these strawberries look good enough to eat.


suddenly had a brain wave to photo them with a cut out frame around them, think this makes them look better as I am not planning to trim them to size till I decide what to do with them all.


not sure why this one has gone on smaller than the rest    oh yes I remember I took the photo wrong so flipped the block so that it was the way it should  be.

You're doing well to be keeping up with all the blocks. "Strawberries" is my favourite too.

You have an interesting collection of blocks. It will be fun to see what you do with them all, and yes, the paper frame for the photo shoot is a good idea!

I like the one with the red frame and the strawberry material, they are lovely!
Going back to your last blog post, the lining material that I mentioned is called bonded lining, it just gives a bit of strength without being bulky. I hope this is of some use to you.

The "mish mash" block is fantastic! It looks like a deserts unset with stars coming out!

It's amazing the effect the frame has on giving a finished look, isn't it? I use them a lot with my paintings.....
Your blocks look great! Well done.
