Chapter 6, Block 22

Blcok 22 is about cutting different sizes of motifs from the same print. The goal is to find a fabric you love that has both a large focal motif, as well as small focals you might otherwise overlook. By isolating the small designs apart from the large designs, you shift the focus to the other elements in the fabric!

We love how Janice of Better off Thread used the kitty cat in the center with the butterflies, birds, fish and mice as secondary focals!

TIP: If you're working with a directional background, when you cut your (1) 4-1/2" square of fabric B (background), you'll need to cut it on the bias to make sure the directionality flows through the block. Otherwise, those sections will not have the same directionality in the final block.
