WOB, MOTHERS OF MOSES, SUNSHINE AND SHADOW BASKET


Here's my block for the mothers of Moses. I chose the blue for the Nile that little Moses floated down, green for the reeds and grasses he passed through, and browns for the basket. I like how the pattern has the sharp diagonal line (or horizontal when you place it on point). This to me represents the two mothers, so different, and yet so the same in caring for and protecting Moses. Sun and Shadows. Sun and shadows.

I was confused by this pattern. Where is the basket, where's the sunshine, where's the shadows? Which way is up? In the end I like how it turned out.

Beautiful! I could see the basket right away. I like the green and blue showing the water and the grass.

Yes, I like the way you did it. I looked at the patterns and wondered where's the basket? LOL! Not enough contrast for me, but this one is easier to see, especially on point.

I love your block. I'm doing this Bible study also and haven't work on my blocks yet. You have given me inspiration.
