Crazy patchwork block

For the Skill Builder Samplers last week, Leila asked us to make a crazy patchwork block. I was happy to do it, as I love this technique. I used some of my opshop ties to make this block. The photo does not do it justice however; the colours are much more 'purple' than what they look here. Additional comment Thanks to all who commented on this block. I don't plan to embellish it in any way at this stage, but I am thinking of making some more blocks with the ties, perhaps a different colour scheme for each block. Goodness only knows I've got enough differently coloured ties to do another 10 blocks!

lovely block. I have so many of these to catch up on. Just need to stay well long enough to make progress on anything

I agree with Doreen - I love the clean lines of this block. Are you going to embellish it... You know who to call should you need a bead or two or three... Although look at it it would look just lovely with just embroidery....

Looks great, Gina ... those ties are very attractive put together this way.
