Well, not exactly lost, just deeply buried. Remember this?
Bridget, my SIL, and I have made 29 of these blocks, so earlier on this year, I though I'd have a go at putting them together. My thought was a low volume diamond to join the blocks, but I had terrible trouble getting them to fit. It seemed that some of the outside seams were coming out smaller than others - you can see the one on the left is slightly smaller.
I just couldn't figure what was wrong - how can it be small if you're using templates? So in frustration, I stuck it in a draw and ignored it.
Then when Bridget came over in summer we got them all out looking at them, and my other SIL, Josie pointed out that some of the snowballs were actually quite a bit smaller than the others! How? Then the penny dropped. I had sent Bridget the pdf file with the templates, for her to print off at home, and she had must have printed them on "shrink to fit" not actual size. Oh bugger, and that's being polite! There's a lesson to be learned here.
So they got buried again for another couple of months, until I took them out the other day. I really must bite the bullet and do something with them. But the question is what to do with 20 big blocks
and 9 slightly smaller ones?
I was thinking of making the front up with the bigger blocks, and using the smaller ones for the back. Unless you have any suggestions that is?
