|This photo shows how I tend to put quilts together, first in units of four, then 16 patch units. Only a few more seams then it will be done.|
Nadia has claimed a small section for her own blocks. After choosing her first fat quarter pack (what a mother/daughter moment) she announced that she wanted to make a quilt! These wonky cross blocks are perfect because she can practice her straight seams, but as it needs to be squared up anyway, it doesn't really matter too much what her seam allowance is.
I popped up the four My Tweets blocks that need blanket stitch - just in case I'm inclined to forget about them.
I also redid that first Seeing Squares block, including a few more neutrals, and whipped it together. This is actually one of the other layouts...
I've started piecing the second block but still have a few spaces to fill.
Because I've been so good... I thought I deserved a crack at something new. Just one block. Until I finish something else momentous...like quilting or binding or something, and then I will be "allowed" to do another block.
This is only a small portion of the first block... but I am loving it!
The original quilt had blocks which finished at 16 7/8th and had all sorts of weird measurements. After resizing it to 18" and using my favourite easy triangle rulers...
