Globetrotter and Aurifil blocks completed

I am doing two BOMs this year, one is called Globetrotter and it is a special quilt designed by super quilter Pat Sloan.
This is a big block, 24", and is the medallion for the center of the quilt.

I thought this block with all the different prints was a bit busy, but I do like it.  I am not sure I would change anything, just worried that it is a bit busy.  The fabric is mostly from the Nordika collection by Jen Baker.  I really like the feel of this fabric.  It is way different than most.  It has a softness to it and feels almost like a stretch knit.

 This is the January Aurifil block.  It is designed by Bridgitte from Zen Chic.  I really like the modern colors I am using.  It will be interesting to see how the blocks come together as the months roll on.


The fabric is all from my stash and I like to use stash fabric for all the BOMs.

  3. That globetrotter block is really neat! Agreed that it is a little busy, but still fun!
