She took one look at all the blocks laid out on the spare bed & she just so so wanted to play !!! Luckily, we were off out to "the cafe" !!!
So today while it rained, I had a final audit/play with the placement of my hour glass blocks!!
...I shifted things around a wee bit to ensure the top & the bottom rows were sort of mirror images of each other, something I have found in the past helps keep a bit of balance happening in a scrappy sort of quilt!
...and I replaced some of the teal triangles with a more deeper blue fabric to give more variety.
...and then I spent a couple of hours sewing, getting the blocks all together!! (b4 little Olive returns!!!)
These large blocks went together v. easily, a little bit of pinning to interlock everything nicely, & all intersections looking ok for once!!!
