Surf & Sand Challenge - Block 1 - CHINA
Here is a block I made for the Surf and Sand Challenge from the HGTV Message Board. It is from Carol Doak's Mariner's Compass Stars book. We are using Marcus Brothers Surf and Sand fabric for the challenge. You have to use at least two fabrics from that collection per block. The two S & S fabrics in this block are the snowflakes in the background fabric and the blue polka doted fabric on one of the rays. I managed to get a little depth in this one - something I am always trying for but usually miss...
Here it is next to the same pattern in different colors. I like this one better!
Whew!! After several days of working the longarm instead of piecing a block, I really needed some quilting therapy!
