Fever all around

I got into a great flow over the weekend and not only caught up on my blocks from last week but also managed to make this weeks blocks (5 + 6). The Tula fever keeps rising with every block I make.

Block 3: Delfts Blauw I am unbelievably chuffed with how this block came out. It totally connects me to my Dutch roots. 
Block 4: Lemon Meringue
More fun with matching fabrics and a great outcome.
Block 5: Zebra Crossing. Block 6: Honey

In her book, Tula really encourages you to name the blocks yourself and with block 3 and 4 it came easily. Block 5 (zebra crossing) just feels right and Honey (block 6) also makes perfect sense to me. However Block 1 (with the pink in it) and block 2 (with the teal in it) proved more challening.

All blocks so far
For the moment block 1 will have to be Candy pinwheel. The best I can do for block 2 is Intersection. But to be honest both names don't really wow me. I might change them when I get a spark of inspiration.

On Saturday while still high on our 5-1 win against Spain I decided to treat myself. I went to the weekly market in Venlo and scored some real bargains. I am a sucker for a bargain. The bottom row were all Fabrics priced at 4€/m

I am looking forward to more soccer matches and hope that the Netherlands can keep up their flying start.
