May Blocks!

I wanted to have my blocks finished early this month, as I have plans to make some of the smaller projects from the book, but using brighter fabrics.

Colours can be so deceiving in photos as the outer border spot fabric on the penquin block, is the same colour (but just bit lighter) as the inner border on the angel block, but in the photos it looks totally different


This is my favourite so far, the Angel is just so sweet!


I am enjoying seeing everyones progress!
