By leaving your email within your comment, I can find you. I realize that this is sometimes a scary thing to do with scams and all but if you disguise the email as say.....

this is the perfect way to hide from the unwanted eye. So please help me out if you are one of the non-responders.
Thank you, in advance.....Ravelly Rhonda!!

When Nature Calls Part 2

Above are more of the types of fabrics I use when developing a photo type block such as the outhouses.
(Block #3) Batiks are great fabrics to use with this type of project because of tie-dye affect of the Batiks. Shadowing and depth can be achieved with the pictorial contrast.  Note the roof, door and tree branches in the above photo.

(Block #4) Plaids, floral directional fabrics do well in these types of blocks, as well.
Do not be afraid to audition fabrics by laying pieces out, one nearly on top of the other.  Another great trick is to take a picture of the desired fabric to view it on the camera viewer itself.  This may give you a sense of what you want from the fabric.

When I'm looking at fabrics like that I can never think of anything to do with them, so I leave them at the store. The outhouses are so cute.

The out-house blocks are coming along beautifully!!!

While still not liking outhouses, I am LOVING your quilt blocks!

This quilt is going to be great!! I love the way you've mixed it all up with the different fabrics. Gives the blocks plenty of "texture".


Don't count the days, make the days count!
