This was the last block in the quilt. Next time I will put the quilt blocks together in a possible combination.
Textured blocks tutorials
This is the 25th block and the last one in a series of fabric manipulations exploring texture in fabric.
Each block is made out of a centre 5 inch square featuring some fabric texture such as pin tucks, smocking, shirring and the like. Then a 3 1/2 wide border encloses each centre square.
The colour scheme is red and white/cream alternating reds and white/cream for the centre square and border.
Some of the textures show better on plain colours than on heavily patterned fabric.
