Fussy Cut Sampler QAL - Blocks 21-24

This week I made the blocks in chapter 6 of the Fussy Cut Sampler.
The Fussy Cut Sampler QAL Block 21
Block 21 plays with scale - using progressively larger versions of a motif in the borders.  In the book, Nichole's block uses plusses and Elisabeth's uses dots so I thought, "I have a ton of fabric, surely I have three different sizes of gingham that work together."

Block 22 focuses on the details in a fabric.  I used a Sarah Jane print that has a lot of really cute detail.

Block 23.  I had a really hard time deciding on fabrics for this block. It is supposed to use complementary focal fabrics. While I was looking through my stash I thought, "Wouldn't it be funny if I used lions and tigers and bears," and then I started laughing hysterically because it was late at night.  I don't normally think of panda bears when I think of that phrase, but that is what I had in my stash.

Block 24.  If you have this book, check out Nichole's version of this block, it is one of my favorites in the book.
