Moda Building Blocks #2
Here's my next two blocks for the Moda Building Blocks Sampler. The top one is 24" x 24" (i think) and the bottom one is 6" x 6".
With the top block I am slightly unhappy with the color/value placement. I wanted the two halves of the geese to be a very similar value, and I thought they were. That green tricked me though, and ended up being a fair bit darker than the aqua. Or maybe it's more a problem that the aqua blends into the background color... Anyways, this block is a real stunner if you can get your values right. I'm not bothered by it enough to make a new block though! Partly because these huge blocks eat up a large amount of fabric.
And the little block suffers from imperfect piecing. If you feel insecure about your seam matching skills, well here you go! I didn't think it was so bad but this close up photo really highlights it. Won't be fixing this either though!
Are you sensing a theme here? Ya, I'm not really a perfectionist. I have an internal list of things I won't allow, but slightly mismatched seams is not usually on that list:)
