For the July Around the Block swap Jan from Sewjourn sent out a bundle of fabric including pre-cut borders to make three 8.5 inch blocks. For the center of each of the blocks Jan asked for "simple but interesting".
The pre-cut borders for each block were a different width, therefore each of the pieced centers varied in size accordingly. I particularly enjoyed the challenge of fussy cutting whilst making the most of limited fabric.

I also enjoy browsing the Quilting Bee Blocks Flickr Group - loads of block ideas!
