Okay, this is by far my dullest Tula Tuesday post to date. The 2 simplest blocks to date- 9 and 10- are all I have to show you.
I’ve been crazy busy with family stuff (the Alamo Drafthouse has been showing “Miyazaki Madness” all week in anticipation of the release of The Wind Rises, and we couldn’t resist going to see My Neighbor Totoro and Howl’s Moving Castle on the big screen), and quilting the giant skull, and finishing the very odd Westknits 2013 Mystery KAL shawl (more on that later this week…)
But! Blocks 9 & 10 are done, and that means I stuck to my 10 blocks/month plan, at least for the first month! Hooray!
Block #9- a simple cross. I decided it was time for some pink. Some hot pink…
Once again I featured that Dowry print I love so much.
Block #10. Time to cool it down. I’ve wanted to add more grey, so…
It’s amazing how different the fabrics look with different solids. That Tula Parisville print in the center looks so different in Block # 6, where I paired it with deep purple.
I don’t love either of these blocks on their own. They’re just fine, not great. But I’m working on the theory that when there are 100 all together, a few plainer or duller blocks might end up being a good thing for balance. (I hope!)
Don’t forget to come back next week when I’ll kick off the Tula Tuesday link party! Looking forward to seeing everyone’s blocks… Grab a button and come back next week!
