I know it's already March so I'm a bit behind posting pics of my Lucky Star BOM for February. I did get them posted to the Flicker group though, so yay!
For February, I made 2 blocks. One with the 6 inch template and one with the 12 inch. I used the tye-dyed fabrics that I bought at the Houston Quilt Festival for the 12 inch block. I'm slowly using this fabric on blocks that I think are really cool with the hopes that they will all "go together" at some point so that I can make my son a cool quilt/wall hanging for his room. But we'll see what happens.
The six inch block is made with Moda's Eat Your Fruits and Veggies fabric just as January's block was. I think this will make a really cool and bright quilt when all the blocks are finished.
Ok. Now I'm going to show you my February block for the Saturday Sampler I'm doing with my LQS. It's called Spinner and it's suppose to look like a pinwheel. It's an old pattern that's been around forever and I did an absolutely perfect job cutting out each piece. It came together perfectly and I was so proud of my block. I think it's the most exact cutting job I've ever done. I'm using bright Batik fabrics with a white background.
BUT, once I finished the block and went to take the picture, I looked through the camera lens and that's when I saw it. A swastika. When you look at it in person, it looks like a pinwheel but through the camera, it looks like a swastika.
I was so upset. And, I was also afraid to post a pic because I don't want to get hate mail about it or anything. I think if the color palette were different, it would look different but instead the batiks are very similar in color.
What do you think? Am I just imagining things? I mean this pattern has been around forever so you would think someone else would have noticed it by now. Please tell me I'm nuts.
And don't send me hate mail.
