“Tell Me A Story”

WARNING:

Amy Friend’s blocks in her quilt “Tell Me A Story” are addictive!

(Her book, just out, is INTENTIONAL PIECING and her blog is http://www.duringquiettime.com)

She can’t resist them either–and the new ones she is making are on Instagram and the blog.

Here are my first ones–made yesterday afternoon, where I spent some sewing time just playing.

The idea is to make some connection between the fussy cut center of the block and the borders:

I chose a soft salmon/peach color for my background…

I don’t know how this block center got “turned.”  I make take it apart and recenter it.  Not sure if that is possible though…

I like the Indonesian fabric with the tiger…

I’m not sure I can resist making a few more of these blocks this afternoon…
