V4W Block 3 - Union Square

Block three from Barbara Brackman's Grandmother's Choice - Votes for Women Block of the Week is Union Square.   

I love this one - the red really jumps out at you.  

These fabrics are from Vintage Modern.  Here is the plateau of fabrics I will be using

When I made blocks one and two, I actually upsized them to be 10" blocks and converted from the posted directions for 8' blocks.  Spending time converting Union Square tipped me over the edge so I decided to make 8" after all which meant I have to remake the first two blocks.  I did block 1 in the exact same color combo.  I will tackle block 2 and the y seams in the future.   Since this block didn't turn out square, I am ok trying to make it again.

My blocks so far are here.

Tomorrow's my day in the Dots on Dots Blog Tour.  If you've missed any the entries, the master schedule can be found here.   Please check out today's entries on the tour organized by our best cheerleaders - Corrie and Mdm Samm.

Happy Stitching!
