Yesterday I was taking care of some odds and ends and some how ended up on Pinterest. I confess to being totally captivated by a lot of the wonderful photography out there. And the styling! Sometimes the photos are better than what you 'd see in a magazine. Anyway yesterday this photo of a goose tracks block caught my eye. I wonder if those blocks eventually become something, there's some circles there, I'm sure there's going to be some fantastic applique involved. Anyway, I was thinking about that photo all day.
So I made a goose track block. I like it. It was fun. But now that I go back and look at the original and really pay attention, I notice that the proportions are different, the center isn't the same size as the corner squares, and the whole block appears to float on the background. I believe it's a hand pieced block.. not sure. Lovely though. Everything about the picture has me wondering about what happened to the blocks. If you have the time head over to the Pink Caramel blog and page through it. Really wonderful.
Ok, I'm off for a few days. I will probably be instagramming, in case you want to keep up with me. It will be fun to get away and see some new sights for a few days. Most of all I'm excited to catch up with Roseann! She mostly posts on Facebook, and you can catch her here. She's really good about posting photos of interesting things.
See you next week! xo
