Week 16 White House



Do not adjust your monitor - I know I am out of sequence with this posting. And that my block being all in grey and white may make you think the color settings are amiss on your screen. I also know I am giving you an example of something along the lines of "imitation is the most sincere form of flattery" so Cheryl, you should feel very flattered.

Yes, I struggled a lot with this week 16 block. Part of the problem was with my self imposed color scheme of grey and blue. Another part of the problem was the "suggestion" that a striped fabric form the focal portion of the block. Many striped fabrics were auditioned and set aside. After several tries I had to go with Cheryl's example and made my own striped fabric.

So with kudos to Cheryl for the idea, here is my week 16 block at last:


The fabrics are cut for week 18 and my ankles are smoking with the heat of being behind as the week 20 block is posted tomorrow.

Gulp.

Too bad it was not an original idea of mine!
