I checked the sizes of my blocks and these varied considerably! I think I had made the centre squares all different sizes too! Anyway this afternoon, I sewed a couple more rows onto the blocks that didn't measure up to the required 12 1/2". And then layered them up & quilted each one with a simple 1/4" outline.
These four blocks do kind of look v. soft & girly ....... hope still ok for the cause?
We have our monthly Monday Modern meeting after the weekend and Megan from Jaffa Quilts has kindly offered to post off any blocks we can make. We are also doing a bit of a scrappy fabric swap so I've sorted out a few of my blue fabrics to hopefully swap for a few low volume black&whites, and have something to take along for "show & tell" too. Busy family day tomorrow so, as you can see, I'm all organised early
...just need the wine & the cheese!!
(no, not really!!)
And, I received a little package in the post today...I know I know...do I need any extra fabric just now? These fabrics are from Amitie Textiles/Australia, a monthly stash pack, 10" squares of pretty!
And, my goodness, do they ever look & feel v. different!
Why can't we get this sort of fabric over here in good old NZ I wonder?
