Today I would like to share Block 77 on my I Dropped the Button Box quilt which looks a bit dull taken out of context however it fits the set of the quilt as part of the diagonal line that runs across the quilt. It is an example of choosing colours for a block that will fit the set of the quilt. If you click on the thumbnail of the quilt you see what I mean by diagonal bands of colour that run across the quilt.
Over the next few weeks I will share articles about the embroidery and embellishments in closer detail but for today I will focus just on the block. Once again if you click on the photo you will see a larger version of the block.
