FATW3 weeks 5 and 6

I got a little behind with making the week 5 and 6 squares for the Friends around the World 3 CAL (FATW3). Weeks 5 and 6 were both designed by Ineke Mooijenkind and they are called "Dutchy" and "Dutchy Too". Both are inspired by Delfts blue tiles made in the Netherlands so I decided to use mostly blue for them. I couldn't resist adding a little white into both to give some contrast though I think they probably look best done in 3 colours just as Ineke has done in her originals.

You can find the link to Dutchy here and you can see my finished square in the photo below:

You can find the pattern for Dutchy Too here and you can see my version of it below. I tried to reverse the placement of the blue and white in the second square but I'm not sure if I got it quite right as I didn't take note of exactly how many rounds I did in each colour. My second square came out slightly bigger than the first but that should sort itself out when I block the squares at a later stage.

If you're making the whole CAL don't forget to add in the extra 3 rounds. You can find them here
