I have a plan this time to set my blocks on point. Now what I need to do is remember that subtle fact when I am cutting fabric - as well as photographing my block.
The story for this months block is about Susan Lowe who, at the age of 17 meets an idealistic Augustus Wattles. Together they dedicated their lives to the concept of abolishing slavery and educating both free blacks and those who have escaped slavery.
I'm trying to use a bird print in my blocks. To my thinking this particular print fit the story this week as there are adults helping children and the adults are of different color.
Looks like I need to take more time with my photos. Or maybe reconsider the fabrics - are the prints too "fussy" to be worth using in this project?
