Fiona's block(s) from Rosemary

I have just started swapping blocks and Rosemary has done my first block for my Eye Spy quilt.....
it is a Wonky Square.....


I love how there are several of the Australian animals in it.

~ Thanks so much Rosemary - I love it ~

I had originally asked for disappearing Nine-Patch and Rosemary did make one for me, I agree with her that Eye Spy does not really lend itself best to the disappearing Nine-patch... but she sent the block she has made and I do like it.... and will use it on something else.... a mug rug maybe?


I haven't seen these fabrics and they are so lovely.... makes me want to go out shopping!!

Wishing you all a wonderful Christmas

They're lovely Australiana fabrics. Fantastic for an eye spy quilt.

I think a dissapearing 9 patch would work if you chose a solid colour like red or blue to break up the busyness of it.

I really like both blocks. I do think the wonky block works better for the I Spy you are creating.
