Block 5

I couldn't resist tweaking this block.  I re-drew it to be pointier and curvier.  It was totally worth the extra fabric to line up the print pattern.  I'm so happy having a project for the red batiks I've been collecting over the past couple years.

Block 4

Continuing my series with batiks on white-on-white.   Will finish my corner flowers when I catch up on the center motifs.   Block 5 is basted in place and about to be stitched.

Block 3

I've managed to fall behind, but the next 2 blocks are significantly simpler so I'll be caught up soon.  I love how the red batik looks like light shining on the cherries.

Block 5

Thought I'd get a bit more poison green in this one to balance out the mixture of fabrics in the other  blocks I've made.

I'm really enjoying working with these colours but isn't it great to see all the variation of fabric choices in the other posts? I've not done a BOM before but it is such a treat to see all the lovely possibilities of fabrics and colours.

Month 4 is completed

I finished the block for Month 4 just in time for May's pattern reveal.

Once block 5 is completed - I will begin the corner applique' motifs on my blocks.
They will be different from the original pattern, hopefully they will look just as nice.

Wishing you all continued success on your Ben Biggs blocks!
