So I decided to lay out all the little teeny tiny blocks I’ve made to see how big it is. It’s not very big. Only 80cms on the long side. I’m beginning to feel like I’m going to have to make all 501 blocks in order just to make a lap blanket. Seeing it all …
This block is called Corn and Beans. I wonder if they mean green beans or baked beans? Right now after being on Michelle Bridges 12WBT for 10 weeks, I am a little over both types!
This week is brought to you by the Amish Diamond. Nope, still no better with the points. Oh well, in the overall scheme of things, I don’t really care.
Another week, another block to share. This week is the Turn About Variation. This was an easy block to make and yet none of my points match! Oh well, I’ll try a bit harder on the next one.
While I enjoy making these blocks, I find it difficult each week to come up with something interesting to say about each one. This week’s block is called Rolling Pinwheel. So, what can I say about this one? It’s pink and cream. Yep, that’ll do.
This week is brought to you by the Rolling Pin block. All I can say is this block was so fiddly. I ended up doing a seam wrong and threw my hands up in the air and went to bed as I had enough (and also because I couldn’t focus on anything close up so …
This week’s block is called Album. I dropped into the quilting shop at Wagga and picked up that gorgeous dark green fabric. You know, I’m still unpicking at least one seam on these things still. Sometimes my brain can’t work these things out.
Annie’s Choice is this weeks block. If Annie really had her choice she would have told me to use a bolder coloured fabric. Too late now and I’m not redoing it. But otherwise, this was actually quite a nice block. Shame I messed it up, really.
This week is the Devil’s Claw. Another very time consuming, small and fiddly block. I would not like to know how many hours I have put into making this quilt thus far. And because the back is a little bulky with seams, no amount of ironing would make it sit nice and flat.
I have no idea where they get some of these names from. The block this week is called “54-40 or Fight”. Whatever is that meant to mean? I guess it kind of looks like a ninja star? If you squint?
