Fairy Tale Blocks

Two different bees this month asked for fairy tale blocks.  I love making girlish blocks, so I had fun with these.

For August's Fussy Cut Love, we were sent a snow white print and some strips, asked to make log cabineque blocks with the scenes as the centers.  Fun!

This one was my favorite, I love the blue and yellow.

This tall block didn't turn out as I had hoped, I ran out of colored strips and had to add another fussy cut bit to the top.

 In Sew Buzzy, We were sent pink and yellow fabrics and a princess print.  Guidelines were "right angles" and we had to use the princess fabric somewhere.  I really like how this one turned out.

A detail shot of the center.  I didn't intend for it to be wonky, but it is slightly wonky.
