This is the first set of 12 Kaffe 16 patch blocks that I made. I am using 3" strips so I'm only getting one block out of 2 strips sewn together but I also get 2 four patches. I might try some double 4 patch blocks with these.
The next 8 blocks haven't been pressed yet.
I'm also contemplating alternating them with a large print but probably not this print. My first set of blocks are predominantly blue and green and high contrast between the 2 fabrics. I will have a lot more low contrast blocks as I continue.
Last night I went to see "The Imitation Game" at our local theater. I was a very small child at the time of WWII and my parents didn't talk about the war so as I see movies about it I realize how devastating it was. History class in high school in the 1950s didn't prepare me for the destruction shown in the movies either. This movie is based on a true story; a rather amazing story.
