The choice of fabric for the sky (which Soraia noticed on previous blocks and suggested I repeat on this block) is important as it brings to mind smoke or 'particles' in the air. All fabrics used are by Riley Blake Designs.
Here is what you will need:
6" x 4" rectangles of assorted grey prints for smoke stacks
17" x 6-1/2" rectangle of grey dots/white fabric for sky
Erasable fabric pen
From grey dots/white fabric: (4) 3-1/2" x 2-1/2" rectangles and (4) 2-7/8" squares
From assorted grey prints: (4) 3-1/2" x 2-1/2" rectangles and matching (4) 2-7/8" squares
Aurifil 50 wt is perfect for every fabric combination. It works very well for paper piecing, too, and it is the one I used on the blocks in the paper piecing video tutorial I posted this week.
Get ready for this week's block tutorial:
City Girl Sew Along as the previous blocks have all used machine applique. Stop by next Thursday to see block #30!
Have a fun sewing day...
