I will post the next chapter of my trip soon, but in the meantime…

At the VMQG we had a block challenge for June. Our challenge was to take the fabric we received in our May fat quarter swap, add other fabric to it and sew a block using the “something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue” rhyme as inspiration.  Our received swap fabric would be considered the “borrowed”.

The fat quarter on the bottom one I received in the swap!

The rest were the following fabrics:

I decided to fussy cut the motifs.

The borrowed fabric is Bird Sanctuary by Yuwa.

An idea was taking shape

I liked this layout the best

My block is finished!  I was nighttime when I finished the block so excuse the dark photo.  I’m happy with the outcome. Thanks for looking! 🙂
