As many of you may know I was fortunate enough to be able to participate in the Splendid Sampler 2 organized by Pat Sloan and Jane Davidson.
I was very excited when asked to participate. I love Foundation Paper Piecing and of course I had to use that technique for my block.
The block is named Betty’s Bloom in remembrance of Betty Blue, my first Jack Russell. I had her as a puppy and she was the start of 3 Dog Design.
I love all aspects of creating from designing to sewing but nothing is better that when you can share your work with friends. And it's even more fun when you can share a great bottle of wine to relax and enjoy the company.
I wanted to try using the block on its own in a small wall hanging and wanted to see what it would look like in all solids. The results was a nice modern interpretation of the design.
Another idea would be to alternate Betty's Bloom with a simple block.
Join us on our next cruise to Alaska.
