Craft Photo Post Day 2

Today's post is a little bit of a cheat - these are the latest finished block from L'Amour quilt project, as I am calling it, and as is the name of the fabric line I am using. This is the jelly roll that I am cutting up into pieces for piecing. And all patterns are via Jinny Beyer. The one on the right which is called Liberty Star nearly did my head in. I haven't been very good at checking is the right side of templates and I cut the whole pattern out back to front so couldn't follow the pattern to piece it properly. I think it still works! 

This one below involved the first real fail as I originally had a dark pink in the place of the red squares and the contrast was not strong enough to bring about the 3D illusion. It wasn't too hard to unpick and replace with the red squares which instantly lifted the block.

As of tomorrow, I'll be posting shots of progress which may or may not be completed blocks etc but will represent progress along the way.
