Three blocks for Sarah

After a stressful week at work with no time for crafting, I sat down on Friday night to work on a block for Sarah. My instincts these days are always improvisational but that isn’t what everyone enjoys.

I felt really bad this morning when I compared my square with the others posted here, so I tried to concentrate on more traditional styles and managed to eke out two more 13″ blocks. In this first one, I made a mistake in adding a log in what was supposed to have been a half log cabin, but decided to turn it into a design element.

This next one is the most traditional and was super fun, but came up short on the final blue round so I added the strip of red. I like the oddness of that red strip, but it’s easily fixed, if Sarah has a bit more of the red fabric.
