It is time to introduce Block 34 which has a colour scheme made up of shades of white and blue. This is probably a simple colour scheme but as I said when introducing the last block when there are 100 blocks in a quilt you need a few that are not screaming at you.
I hope you will enjoy the focus on each detail on this block over the next few weeks and that readers are still enjoying seeing me document the seams, embellishments and decorations on the I dropped the button box quilt.
- Piece 1: Cotton
- Piece 2: Polyester
- Piece 3: Cotton polyester furnishing fabric
- Piece 4: Crepe
- Piece 5: Cotton
- Piece 6: Lace over cotton
- Piece 7: Cotton polyester furnishing fabric
