|C5 Gift Wrapped|
|C8 Summer Picnic|
Isn't Carol's choice of fabrics spot on in Gift Wrapped. I always love stripes and these give the definite suggestion of a party with lots of streamers.
In her second block Carol, Summer Picnic, she says she isn't sure where they will have the picnic as everything is overcrowded with flowers. Funny isn't it you lay two fabrics together and there appears a good contrast and then, after you go to all of the effort to actually sew them together, the contrast disappears. I had it happen too often myself when making Raconteur. Some blocks I remade while others I left.
We've all been there.
