More Happy Row by Row Blocks starring PKM Fabric

20 comments
Apologies to PKM Pam for my bad color representation in this post but I took the photos late last night with bad lighting and a tired brain.
Here is another block with my new row by row project. This was a block I've had in my planned some months now. I have a cute pink proof of concept block I made a while back that has been just waiting for Pam's fabric to arrive. This block doesn't use any triangles. I love making blocks over sized and then being able to trim them to the perfect dimension.
The blocks show off Pam's fabric really well I think. I used some neutrals from my own stash to compliment the prints and florals.
My favorite of all these blocks is the green one. I love that color. It reminds me of a shamrock and luck. But I think they all turned out cute.
If you look at my Monday post you can see I had the rick rack at the top of the basket block pointing down against the basket. After playing with the baskets and thinking a bit I decided to repress the blocks to stand the rick rack up against the white handle piece and top stitch in the seam allowance. I think it makes a better statement. What do you think?

These are beautiful blocks...and I like the rick rack up as well...it's nice both ways but it stands out a bit more when it is up...like a little stage for the rick rack. :-)

The ric rac looks great both ways, but I think it's a tad better up as well. Wow such beautiful blocks, Nanette! I love what you're doing with Pam's fabrics. Can't wait to get my hands on some. xo Jen
