Let’s fly, let’s fly away!
This week for Block 8 we are Flying North!
This is one of our 12″ x 6″ rectangular blocks. I have a great fondness for these blocks, they’re a break from the boring old square. LOL!
I like finding other designs in a block (see my “bug block” a few posts back) This block, with the green fabric in the center makes me think of a fir tree.
Flying North is available at The (Not So) Dramatic Life Etsy Shop.
