Jennifer's Blocks for Chris

Hello Everyone! I'm back in Switzerland now.

I had some time to work on Chris' blocks during my last week in New Mexico. Once again, I enjoyed working on a project that gave me the opportunity to explore in an area that I might not have otherwise. The challenge for me was to stay within the "red, white, and aqua" color groups. I have always admired Chris' peaceful aesthetic sense in her home and her making these blocks I got to experiment with her style of simple beauty.

Proportion was also something I was thinking about...trying to balance the size and location of the colored strips to the white.

Another great bee project, thanks Chris. Your blocks are in the mail!


  1. Oh Jennifer, I am so excited to see your post! Thank you, I LOVE your work! Beautiful choice of fabrics and layout. I love that you chose to do 3 strips in each block. I spy one of my favourite Amy Butler fabrics in red and I really like that aqua swirl and floral fabric. Tres jovial! Can't wait for your blocks to arrive. Xx
