Love them or hate them, block swaps are always a challenge. What colors do YOU choose? How do you lay it all out when your blocks arrive? I always enjoy the swaps provided by my friend Martha Dill Lindberg and the latest is Bento Box Block Swap.
First to Finish my Blocks
It was very exciting to be the first person to send their blocks in to Martha.
This lovely pin is very special and I wear it often.
Decisions, decisions! As soon as the blocks arrived, I previewed many layouts to decide on what made me the happiest. I even put the blocks together and viewed them in color and black and white.
- This layout adds contrast
- By separating the blocks, the differences are less noticeable.
These blocks are crazy and with so much going on, I didn’t want to add to the fray. For this reason, I chose a simple E2E Pattern, Morning Glory.
Here are a couple closer views:
While the back does not show the E2E in obvious fashion, the label I created is pretty cute.
I can’t wait for Martha’s next block swap – do you swap?
