Hit and Miss: 15 pieces; 15 colours.
Next is August 20 with a 6.5" block - Fair and Square which is square but not fair as it has some Y-seam that I
|I don't know what I am doing wrong but it is obviously not right.|
I did only five corners and I am impressed by that. They all needed to be ripped and sew again and again, and only one ended being such a hot mess that I had to cut a fifth one. Not an expert but a pat on the back nevertheless. (I still hate it!)
Best of All is next. It has 49 pieces. It is a 6.5 inches block but still it makes for small stitching.
August 22 - Vines in the Window with 24 pieces. Back to 3.5" block.
|At this stage, it measures 2 5/8 inches and has 20 pieces.|
The centre of this block measures 1-15/16 inches. Since we make units a little bigger, the centre needed some trimming. How do you trim a block to a 15/16 of an inch and keep the X of the hourglass in the middle? You have to trim it down to 2 inches and then trim it again 1/32 of an inch all around. Whhhhaaaaattt????
Kathrine had to figure that by herself. Trials and errors must have abound at her place. Wow!
|Here it is, with its last border, measuring 3.5 inches.|
Oh! and it has 32 pieces.
Aircraft was easier. Phew! It has 17 pieces and only two colors so it didn't took too long to chose the fabric either.
total 189 pieces for 7 blocks. Now the weekend is here, I'll be able to sew some more little blue blocks. Yay!
My leader/ender with all these blues were some red strings.
P.S. I want to share one more thing. I picked it up from a friend's blog. It is so true. Thanks, Fiona.
