Retro Phone PP block

Made for Pastiche Bee for March. It was suppose to look retro and have retro colours. Does it look retro enough for you?

Fabrics I used:
*Etchings by 3 Sisters: Aqua Wallpaper, Parchment Tapestry in Aqua, Etched Scrolls in Natural,
*Cut Out and Keep fabric - Free as a Bird.
*and grey fabric which name I do not remember.

I will release the PP pattern in few days :)

Blok marcowy w Pastiche Bee. Tematem byly przednioty retro. Ja wybralam telefon. Wyszedl wystarczajaco retro?



I'm still not quite sure is I used the right fabric for the phone itself and althoug I like that subtle look of the block, sometimes I think that it's a bit dissapearing in the background... I think I will make another block with darker fabric for the phone, but which fabric should I use: solid (on the bottom) or the one with flowers (on top)? The rest will remain as it is now, as I really like the colour combination on this one.

Nadal nie jestem przekonana, czy uzylam dobrej tkaniny na sam telefon. Wydaje mi sie (chociaz lubie taki delikatny efekt jak jest teraz), ze troche za bardzo stapia sie z tlem. Bede niedlugo szyla kolejny blok (reszta materialow pozostanie bez zmian, bardzo podoba mi sie to polaczenie kolorow) i zastanawiam sie, ktorego z materialow uzyc na telefon - gladkiego czy w kwiaty?

  3. mysle ze gladki bylby lepszym pomyslem - lepiej widoczny bedzie ten telefon :) oczywiscie teraz jest przepiekny, ale jak uzyjesz tego ciemnego niebieskiego materialu w kwiaty jako tlo to moze byc troche za bardzo naciapane.. ale to tylko moja skromna opinia :)
    telefon mistrzostwo! :)

  4. What a super block - I'm being drawn and inspired by so many paper pieced blocks that are coming from quilting bees at present - I really must get some UFO's cleared away so I can try some for myself
