The fabric combination for this block came to my mind the second I saw it on Instagram, so I took a little break from the other projects I’m currently working on and put it together. It is a really quick block to make, and there are several possibilities to play with it (one day I might make the quilt proposed by Amy Gibson here).
I really love the effect of appliquéing using a straight stitch – I just sewed a second line of stitching for the fun of it!-.
