Ready for February

I didn't post yesterday for WIP Wednesday - but I had a good excuse - it was my birthday and we went out for dinner (I love Frankie and Benny's) and then the cinema to see Les Miserables (or as Michael calls it, Miserable Les). I managed not to cry, Michael managed not to fall asleep! So that means that I'm having my own little WIP Thursday! Doesn't have quite the same ring to it does it?

This Saturday coming is the first Saturday of February and I'll be sharing my second block of the month. This block gave me quite a headache. Or more accurately, my maths is rubbish! Did you know that 3 plus 3 plus 6 does not equal 10? Well, that was the main problem. So I had a bit of a redesign and the flying geese I showed you earlier in the week bit the dust! 

I also totally changed my fabric - it just wasn't doing it for me. I've gone, unconsciously, for a bit of a spotty theme! Makower, Flea Market Fancy, Tilda, a batik and then two prints from Architextures. In hindsight I think a solid background for my square-within-a-square blocks may have been better....

But overall I'm happy with the block - I hope you like it too! Come back on Saturday for the pattern!
