Alison Glass Blog Tour!

Fabrics by Alison Glass

Welcome to the final stop on the Alison Glass Sun Print and Clover Sunshine Blog Tour! I was lucky enough to spend the last week working with some beauties from both of Alison’s latest lines. I really love the color palette she created with these prints. And text lovers rejoice – there is an entire rainbow of text prints.

Shoo Fly by Fresh Lemons Quilts : Faith

I decided to pair my fabrics light print/dark print and create Shoo Fly blocks. These are really simple, striking blocks. Svetlana of s.o.t.a.k. handmade has a tutorial for making a 12″ square. Mine are slightly smaller 9″ finished blocks, so instead of cutting 4-1/2″ individual squares I cut 3-1/2″ ones.
