Stay at Home Round Robin - Round 4 - Signature Block

Only two more rounds after this one for the Stay at Home Round Robin (SAHRR) hosted by Gail @ Quilting Gail.  If you have not been able to sew along, you can always do the round robin at your convenience.

Wendy Pieceful Thoughts of My Quilting Life has chosen:  Signature Block

I pulled out Kona Kale (from the curved round) and Grellow to make my signature blocks.  I wanted to use my Accuquilt Go cutter and dies to make the signature blocks, but that would have resulted in a 4.5 inch row.  So I improvised.  I am a Girl Guide after all. 😊  Use your resources wisely.

I decided on a 3.5 inch row (to match the previous row).  Instead of putting a 2.5-inch square on the corner of the 3.5-inch squares, only to cut off the excess of both fabrics, I used my HST die for the corners.

Because I was sewing late at night, I didn't pay attention to the fact that I didn't have enough Grellow to do signature blocks for the entire border.  Sigh....  But I'm going to say this was a design choice, because I love how it turned out.  This now finishes 26.5 inches.
