The Brit Bee ’13 part 2 block I referred to yesterday was this one:
This was the 2nd block I asked my lovely Brit bee-vers to make in February (it’s a 2 block Bee), so that I could make a version of this for my bedroom wall:
As one of the blocks didn’t make it back, I had to try and cobble another one together, with very little by way of leftovers.
I hope you can’t notice which one it is!
|Stuck up on my design wall – not yet sewn together!|
The background linen here is natural Irish linen and isn’t as dark in real life as it looks here.
Anyway, my quandary is that I don’t have enough natural linen to do the outside of the star as well as the pinwheel inside it. So do I go with some darker, mocha Irish linen for the pinwheel (as shown above) or……
….. a paler natural Irish linen or…..
…. a solid cream (this is actually the wadding of my design board showing through, but you get the idea!).
At the moment I’m leaning towards the mocha. What do you think?
