Hmm, looking at my scan of this block, I am not sure what those gross marks are. Hopefully they'll wash out! Looks suspiciously like pizza sauce. In any case, this block was freezer paper pieced, and the fabric was stolen from my cousin's stash in LA. Chances are you recognize it, it's Denyse Schmidt's Ribbon Flowers in Azure from her Katie Jump Rope line.
While making this block, I was trying to decide if Duff has either a seaside cliff house with a bluff, or made a big lie to someone. I'm going to say he has an awesome view, and chose the blue fabric as a result.
