So here are my blocks for my January Swap. I actually picked this block out for my swap group – the organizer was looking for ideas, and I really had been wanting to play with this one for a while. The black, was not my choice – but I think it makes it kind of look vintage-y, particularly with my fabrics. The prints are kind of all over the place – I wanted them scrappy enough to be able to blend in with other people’s blocks – there’s some vintage fabrics, some modern and traditional prints, which I threw in there to kind of tone down the orange – and then there’s a couple of cheesy novelty prints ( Something promoting a Demi Lovato movie, and some Hannah Montana ) in there too just because I think its funny to throw them into scrappy projects. It’s going to be hard to let these go, I like them so much.
