I love this approach to setting sampler blocks and love, love the Windham fabric I found for the alternate blocks. Black/white florals always remind me of my grandmother, for some reason.
I had to add some extra blocks to the 24 to get the size I wanted, so I consulted Around the Block with Judy Hopkins for the perfect additions. They blend right in, because I had in my stash some of the same fabrics as we got in our block kits (see why it's good to have a healthy stash!).
Of course, you can see the downside in having a design bed instead of a design wall. Her name is Chip, because we were told at the pound that she was a he. Thinking that surely they knew what they were talking about, we named her before actually verifying the facts.
Isn't it funny how photographing something can reveal a mistake you hadn't noticed in "real life?" Can you spot it?
