Recenlty I decided to take out and use the stash of Asian-themed fabrics I'd set aside. Many of them are large scale, so I wanted to feature them in a large-scale block.
I'm really happy with how the blocks have turned out. I've used up almost all of my fabrics, and this will be a throw for Michael.
I'm doing hand work these days, so I haven't sewn the blocks together yet, but they're ready for me to get the itch to sew by machine.
I paper pieced this block, which may seem silly to some, but I like the precision of paper piecing, and I enjoy the process. I used these Lori Holt foundation papers, which come in various sizes--I've previously used smaller scale paper foundations of the same Economy Block. I recommend them, they're easy to use and the 12" foundations offer the option to make more or fewer rounds. And you can't beat a 12" block for a quick-to-finish block for large scale fabrics.
