I could not stop after one block for the first example! I need to put a border (maybe in a warm chocolate batik look) to finish it. Pamina (Laurence) made a similar block but in different colours.
I chose the colours of the second block after having seen some red and white combinations on different blogs, for ex. at Hanne´s and at Anne´s. The finished block is 12" x 12" and I still don´t know what I will make of it. Maybe a cushion?
Everything was sewed with freezer paper which I like because it is so precise and I can re-use it many times.
Update: Bea pointed out that 2 links didn´t work. I have changed them and I hope that now everything works.
