The second block is Venice, Italy. Here’s my version:


My first two blocks:


This is a colour palette that I’ve never worked with before. I’m loving it so far. Below are the fabrics I’m using for this quilt. They don’t photograph as well as I’d like in my apartment.


Are you doing this BOM too? There’s also a Flickr group for inspiration.
