In June, Elisabeth gave the girls of Sew Eurobee-an an easy month. She sent us a selection of solids in blue/turqouise/teal and told us to get on and make what we wanted. So I got out my Modern Blocks book, and the Fat Quarterly shape book and made these two beauties
I love the little block on the left (Interlocked by Tacha Bruecher), so much so that I have planned and started cutting, a baby quilt for a freinds baby due in October. There were casualties though.
I started to make a different second block and decided I didn't like the stripey fabric
So I replaced that, finished the block and it turned out too narrow, and the sides didn't line up.
I think this is quite an achievement when most of the block is paper pieced. Obviously the problem was in the white background blocks that I added at the end. Despite help from Di in London, and me re-sewing the corner pieces completely, it is still not right.
I think Elisabeth liked her blocks, but she's not getting the third!
