Splendid Sampler II - My Flock

This week's block for the Splendid Sampler II is "My Flock" by Brenda Ratliff.  A nice easy block to make.

I recently purchased an "Ultimate Flying Geese Ruler", so it this was a good chance to try it out.  So good, and unlike the Bloc-Loc rulers, this one ruler can be used for many different sized blocks.


Anyway, back to the block.  It was a good chance to use a larger scale fabric, but I didn't create very much contrast in my geese.  Not to worry.  Once there are many blocks it won't matter.

Now I just have to catch up on last week's block and then do a big catch up after we get home, as I don't think I'll get this week's done.  We'll see how we go.

You can see what some others created over here.

By the way, we received a very welcome 9.7mm of rain last night.

nice little shower... now we just need to add a digit to the end!! I often worry about contrast on blocks as I don't get it well but as you say in the end it looks ok....
