I love the quilt magazine. Glad you have a block, they know talent.

kaylace said...

Good evening
What a great block for novelty fabrics, I have a good many. The surrounding block gives the illusion of movement, lightning maybe... possibly due to the gold fabric you used. I am assuming it was 12 inches which would probably mean the novelty print is 3 inch square pieces.. very nice.
