I couldn't help but sew a couple of blocks together while I was working on katy's month. I was so curious to see if the herringbone design would really work out and be continuous on all sides of the block. It's not totally perfect but the effect worked out as I had hoped. Paper piecing for the win! I thought I might be making this for my daughter as her bed quilt but now I think her quilt has to have more prints in it. Then I thought I might be gifting this quilt, but now I think I need to keep it for a beach blanket. Right? Right.
Sorry for crappy, dappled sunlight photo. The colors in real life are definitely more vibrant. The pouches in this photo show the colors more accurately.
