The colourful Fiesta blocks are the perfect antidote to the grey days of winter that we’ve had so many of this year. I have enough of the fabric left to use in some other project that calls for some wild and colourful fussy cut pieces.
The effects from fussy cutting/printing a fabric always is a bit of a surprise until the pieces are sewn together. The fabric I used to fussy cut/print for Fiesta has definitely been that – and then some. It was fun to see each block as I finished it.
Some of the stars end up almost hidden, but that doesn’t worry me at all. I love the look of blocks like this one.
This one is my favourite of these four. Of course, because it’s pink!!
The fussy cutting/printing effect of this one was fun to see as I put the block together.
I graded the seams and pressed the blocks before I began sewing them together.
If I can stay focused — which is a huge if — I may have the top together by the end of the week. I’m aiming for that but know that I’m easily distracted and likely to find I need to spend an evening or two working on something else.
