I’ve been tidying up in my sewing room and came across a few blocks I had envisaged as a long term foundation pieced project. I must have started work on this 5 to 10 years ago. When I looked in the bag there were very few blocks completed. I decided to make another 7 and turn it into a small quilt for the babies at the local hospital and then call it done. This one obviously just wasn’t calling out to me loudly enough. I’m not sure how to quilt it, probably straight lines or swirls or … drat I can’t decide!
I also started work on some border blocks for a quilt I’m working on with a group of friends. They’re supposed to look like this.
Here’s my first block trimmed up from the back …. uh oh
Looked all right until I turned it over and realised I was focusing on the seam allowances and not on the seams themselves.
Lucky I followed the rule about only completing one and then checking your work. It’s a valuable lesson!
