For my February Color Adventure block, I wanted to do something
It is the Valentine month after all ;-)!
So I scrapped the block I had started and pulled out three Kona colors;
mulberry, cardinal red and candy pink.
Finding a pattern that was Valentine-ish was harder than I expected.
I wanted arrows or flowers or???
but no hearts.
Through an online search I found about.com.quilt
and the Flying All Around block.
But it had a chunky 6.5" piece of fabric for the center...
I pulled out my BrANd New (thanks, Jane)
Farmer's Wife book
and found Wild Roses and square to fill that spot.
My idea of a valentine..
Arrows of Love circling a bouquet of flowers.
(note- those are fox prints above)
I was so tickled to finish, and skipped out to take pictures before the sun disappeared.
And discovered I had a problem..
(hear the music change?)
So back to the machine and ripper I went.
The wind was beginning to blow,
and this block set to fly off to Oregon!
I can't wait to see what the mailbox delivers this month.....
