Key Lime Pie for Deanna

As I mentioned in my post yesterday, I received these fabrics from Deanna in our Bee Unique, Bee Knotty bee.

Deanna requested that we make her a traditional block (stars, pinwheels, card trick, flying geese, etc.). I really liked the black floral print she sent and decided to use it as the focus fabric, and the yellow and green as secondary prints because they helped highlight the flowers in the black print. I also decided to use the white on beige print she sent as the background because it would help bring out the white in the focus fabric.

I looked through a lot of patterns and selected “Key Lime Pie” as the block for these prints.

This is a simple block but I like the way the black floral stands out, and the yellow and green prints support the dark center. I decided not to use the brown prints because I like the light/dark contrast between these colors. I really hope Deanna likes the block!

Until next time,
