This is my block and I named it Corkscrew. I designed this block some time ago but put it aside because it just wasn't quite right. I came back to it for Vol 10 and tweaked and tweaked some more and then all of the sudden, there it was. Don't you just love it when that happens. When everything falls into place and you know it is just right :) I just love the movement and color play in this block and it has become a favorite ;)
For the Boy Version, I used prints from Elementary by Sweetwater for Moda.
And for the Girl Version I used Into the Woods by Lella Boutique for Moda.
I absolutely love the secondary design that is created when these blocks are put together. I already want to make want a larger size version so I can get lots of those fun "flowers" emerging ;)
When it came time to quilt, I decided on free motion all over swirls for the boy. This really is one of my all time favorite things to quilt. I know I have been promising to do a video tutorial on it and I haven't forgotten. It will be coming ;) I used So Fine 403 Putty and it blended away perfectly.
And for the girl, I decided on free motion echoed paisleys, another go-to favorite. I do have a video tutorial on how I quilt echoed paisleys ;) I quilted these in it in a Magnifico 2041 Happy Red which gives the quilting just a little bit of shine. I love the effect it adds ;)
