Cathedral Square Block 469
Designed by Lee Heinirich
This is my favorite block, so far! When I saw the block in the book, I was not so impressed. The dark background just did not appeal to me, but when I visited Lee's blog and saw how she had used the block with a white background I was completely hooked. Also, I liked how she had used half blocks to stager the rows.
One of my grand-daughter had give me a Moda Layer Cake fabric, called Ruby. I had been looking for something to use for and this fabric seemed to be the perfect answer. Along with that fabric, I added some white for the background, a variety of same colored dark reds for the corners and some light gray for the ring around the center.
