Great blocks and nice placement of fabric colors.

Lovely work Karen. I like making something from the off-cuts which are otherwise wasted in some patterns. Is this how you made the 6" blocks?

The colours look fabulous.

We are also doing the Underground Railroad BOM at my LQS. We, however, are doing 2 blocks a month so the last two are due next Saturday. I am not sure how I will set them but since I did mine in batiks, I know it will be nice. Love your blocks.
