90 Degrees

For April in the Scrappy Bee, Andrea send us some scraps from the Freebird line by Momo.  She requested that we make a block that only uses right angles.  A girl after my own heart.

After checking out her blog and photostream, I gathered that she generally tends towards geometric designs.  I decided to try to go with that in my block designs.  I am not sure I fully captured the geometric element, but I did what I could do.

I actually put a lot of thought and planning into this block.  Unfortunately, I think it would have been better executed in a nonscrappy bee.  I do like the result, it's just different than what I originally envisioned.

In my second block I used up every last bit of scraps but wasn't able to make the full 12.5" square block.  My goal with the second block was to have this scrappy and piecey border around the framed center.  I think it would have looked really great so I was bummed I didn't have enough to finish it off.

I think they look great all the same!

These blocks are so pretty! I love the scrappy log cabin you made.
