Some Assembly Required

Eclectic Flower Garden

I've finished 192 blocks and they are now ready to be assembled into a top. 
I first saw these blocks at Den syende himmel and thought they would be a good use for my short and skinny strings.  I am not going to sash my blocks. For the backgrounds I cut 5 inch squares from an eclectic mix of florals.  For the black corners I used waste triangles. 

Now the blocks are going into the "Some Assembly Required" box of complete block sets.

 The "some assembly required" box now contains the following block sets: 

 Sunny Lanes
Animal Crackers II
Pastel Roses
Peacock Feathers
Wedding Rings
16 Patch
Double X/Snowball (vintage inspired)
Log Cabin
Eclectic Flower Garden

My March OMG (One Monthly Goal) is to assemble at least one top from the list above.

These are great blocks. Looked at the blog connection you listed. It uses the other diagonal “half” as the basis for the strings, as if the basic square was a paper one. I can’t believe you did that! I would have imagined the other “half” to be a waste triangle! 😢

I love the idea of an 'assembly required' box. Good luck with your OMG challenge for March :)

Your Eclectic Flower Garden blocks are gorgeous.
I went to the link and checked out the tutorial, clever. She has borders between her blocks, colorful fun.
Thanks for sharing Cathy.

Your version with florals next to the strings is perfect for spring and summer. I enjoyed her instructions, too. Thanks for sharing. It's always good to see more ways to use our skinny strips. No waste.

So many great block sets ready to go. You will be all set the next time you need a finish to que up.

I predict you'll get more than one of those tops assembled!

LOVE the new addition to the Some Assembly Required box, Cathy!! I loved it when Turid made hers and I'm going to love it when you make yours. I'm going to love it even more, if I ever get around to making one of my own! :o))

There are 31 days in March, so like Nann, I predict there will be more than one finish out the "some assembly required" box.

Sounds like a great goal. Good luck.

This one looks like a fun block to make. Are you working through your string box now?

Pamela Arbour said...

Good work. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. Gotta keep those string sewn up!
