Foot Square Freestyle

I’ve just made my blocks for this month’s recipient for Foot Square Freestyle, which made me realise I haven’t shared last months blocks yet – we’re not allowed to share them until the following month to try and keep the element of surprise there for the lucky person whose month it is. By that time I’ve forgotten about them!!

Last month it was Kate’s month. Kate organises the whole swop and tries to keep us all in order. Kate’s chosen colours were pale to mid greys with a bright colour. I had several pale greys left from my coming home quilt and a few brights in my scrap box. It’s interesting choosing the blocks, most of mine come from a book called A Block a Day, so I’ve 365 to choose from, but certain colour schemes seem to work better with a more modern style block.

The first block is called Midsummer, illustrated in oranges and yellows. Mine looks completely different in pale grey and red, but I like the crispness of it.

The second block is called twist. It’s described as ‘simple to stitch with high impact’ I’d agree with that, the top stripe is more magenta than red. I think this is the second time I’ve stitched this block.

The final block is called Hole in the Corner, I feel it may have worked better with a little more contrast in the greys, but I still like it.

These blocks will be winging there way over to Australia once it is safe to do so. If you follow the link to the Foot Square Freestyle blog you can see all the other blocks made for Kate.

Just for comparison, these are the same two blocks made earlier in the year…

About craftycreeky

I live in a busy market town in Yorkshire with my husband, kids, dogs and chickens. I love trying new crafts, rediscovering old ones, gardening, walking...anything creative really I started this blog after my New Year resolution worked so well. My resolution (the first one I've ever kept!) was to post a photograph of my garden on Facebook every day. My hope was that I would then see what was good in the garden and not just weeds and work, which was my tendency. The unexpected side-effect was that I have enjoyed many more hours in the garden. I am hoping that 'The Crafty Creek' will have the same effect. Happy creating!

    Lovely blocks – the pale grey can be a tricky one to work with can’t it? I was hoping, when I saw your title, you’d have made your own three as I’m about to start on yours (trying to keep ahead of the game) and was hoping for some inspiration.
    No worries – I’ll make it work 😁

    I think Hole in the Corner is my favourite – I love the grey fabrics you have used – especially the one of the seed heads – really lovely
