Bow Block #16

Somehow I got it into my mind that this looked like a gift. Not sure why, thus the name.

To make this block, please print or look at the rotary cutting guide (see below). Piece the 3 small squares and then sew them to large rectangle.

I would suggest a minimum of 3 different colors or fabrics, but 4, as I have used, would work well, too.

CPP Response #114

This is not part of my regular series of responses. I just had a desire to try my hand at responding in watercolors this time. I didn’t follow the color of the original photo, exactly. I used colors that were similar and made me happy, well, at least for the bottles and the tree. I drew the picture in a modified kind of not looking at the photo kind of way. I tried to look at the picture and not my paper, but I did glance at the paper now and again just to orient my pen. I didn’t draw enough lines for the tree and had to add them later. The tree needed more definition than the paint gave it.

The supplies I used were a set of Crayola water colors and a medium Pitt pen.
