Block 70 ~ Kristie

Sorry that it has been a while since I have posted on here. This is block #70. This one is paper-pieced, which I find much easier when making small blocks.
I would really like to get back to working on these a little more regular and not just a block here and there. I am doing this in BLUES since I had several other quilts in the works using reproduction fabrics. Had I to do it over, I would go with the reproduction fabrics, they are my favorite!

Wonderful to hear from you Kristie. Your block is just lovely, and so accurately made. It's so funny that you say you'd choose reproductions if you were to do this quilt over. I actually think if I were to do mine over I'd do blue and white or red and white! I think I just want what I don't have!
Be sure to have a great weekend

This is very fresh and pretty, Kristie. I love blue and white - I plumped for red and white in the end but it was a hard decision. Although I'm happy with my choice, I have also been tempted by the lovely repro blocks that are on here. Maybe we will all have to do two NI quilts to resolve this?!
