Grandmother's Choice #10

The more of these blocks I make the happier I am with them.  I'm so glad I chose the American colors of Gold & Purple with a bit of black & white.
This weeks block is another nice easy one.  Here is my rendition of #10 New York.   And if you would like to read what Barbara shared with us this week just click Here.

Just for fun I thought this week I would show you the Block Base block.  
It's #1383 and looks like this..... I usually open each block in EQ7 and will audition the colors until I'm satisfied.  Most of the blocks I've made by paper-piecing.... so I'll print my patterns on newsprint and start cutting my fabrics.  I get along great with this system until I run up against that dreaded Y seam.  haha

I'll try to remember to add the original picture from Block Base each week ..... if I can remember.  haha
And If you would like to check out some of the other blocks that have been made and posted in Flickr..... Click Here
I hope you're having a great day. Glad you stopped by.....Linda

  1. Pretty! I wondered when I saw the block sketch why you would not just do a strip the width of the block and avoid that seam in the middle. I see that is exactly what you did OR you were very clever in hiding a seam if you didn't, LOL.

    Love the purple and yellows together.


I try to always reply back to anyone that takes their precious time to comment on my blog so I sure hope you have your email enabled.
