The third block in the Grandmothers Choice BOW is "Union Square". I wish there was a little more contrast between the fabrics in my center 9-patch, but I can live with it. This block was straightforward and easy, unlike block #4, which will be challenging! This coming week is going to be a busy one, so I may not have the opportunity to work on block 4 until late in the week, or next weekend. Still determined not to fall behind!
After making my first two blocks, I decided I needed some additional fabrics to add some interest to my original fabrics. I pulled some fabrics from my reproduction fabric stash and put them in the Grandmother's Choice working basket:
These are mostly blues and browns. I had to photo them under artificial light, so even with some Pixelmator tweaking, they're not quite right. They''ll look great with my original fabrics, though.
I picked these up this week at one of my LQS - The Quilted Owl. They specialize in reproduction fabrics, with an emphasis on handwork of all types. I think these reds will really add some POP to my Grandmother's Choice blocks!
