Textured blocks tutorials

This is the 20th block in a series of 25 exploring texture in fabric.

Each block is made out of a centre 5 inch square featuring some fabric texture such as pin tucks, smocking, shirring and the like. Then a 3 1/2 wide border encloses each centre square.

The colour scheme is red and white/cream alternating reds and white/cream for the centre square and border.

Some of the textures show better on plain colours than on heavily patterned fabric.

  1. Looks like fun. I think it would make a cute pillow front. By the way, I think it is more like a Nine patch than a log cabin.
