Have you signed up for the Sew Sweet Simplicty Block-of-the-Month yet?
If not, what are you waiting for????
I just couldn't wait to share my Block #2 with you!
I'm having so much fun playing with this Laurel Burch panel of cat prints!!!
I think this month's cat is very enigmatic, don't you?
Perhaps he was a Pharoah's cat?
I think he knows things mere mortals like you and I just couldn't possibly know.....
Like whether the chicken or the egg came first....
I think he'd say "Neither - the CAT always comes first!!!"
I think it plays well with the orange background in the panel block, and somehow it just says BIG CAT to me. It certainly dominates the block, doesn't it? I couldn't resist adding in that luscious, sparkly blue again, with just a touch of purples for the star points ... YUM!!!
Once again, Jacquelynne's instructions for this block were spot on! I breezed right though it :)
However, I did choose to make a change in the color values suggested in Jacquelynne's block, keeping the color running diagonally out to each corner instead of having the neutral in the corner block.
I wanted the eye to be drawn to the awesome cat in the center, and I think it worked :) So don't be afraid to play around with color values and how you want your block to be viewed. There are so many opportunities to make this fun, versatile block your own!
SEW - once again, here are both of the blocks I've done so far - Block #2.....
