When my friends from The Fat Quarter Shop
asked me if I wanted to participate in their
Single Wedding Ring Blog Hop
(which starts today!) I just couldn't resist!
I immediately fell in love with this block
and it came together really easy.
The hardest part has been deciding on a color scheme.
This is kind of what I'm thinking so far...
(I'm kind of diggin' the vintage-y feel these fabrics have together.
I love to mix the old with the new!)
I did end up cutting my squares a little bigger than the pattern instructs
since I prefer to square up my Half Square Triangles
(it just makes everything match up so nicely!)
I cut my squares 3-1/2" and used THIS method for squaring them up.
I've only had time to make one block so far
but I'm itching to get back to my sewing room so I can make more!
Luckily, I have a retreat coming up in a few weeks
so I know I'll at least be able to work on it there.
