Turns out that, This bundle + This pattern = Perfect Match.
Remember how I blogged about this gorgeous bundle of fabric in blues and golds that recently landed in my stashed? I had the Mexico Quilt pattern in mind for this awesomeness but didn’t think I would be able to pull it off. The pattern, as envisioned by the designer, has you use one print for an entire column of blocks. However, I am known to color outside the lines 😉
Well… when I read the cutting directions for the blocks, I thought I was seeing things. The pieces you cut initially are HUGE! To try things out, I decided that I would make only one block to begin with and see how it works out.
Oh. My. Stars.
What a gorgeous block, I absolutely love it!!! This oversized block will be joined by a few more shortly and before you know it, I’ll have a whole quilt top done.
Money shot, ahh, I love it so!
