It seems like I was just here,
but it has been such fun!!!
These are the blocks for Day 8.
Block #9 by Sandy Gervais
I like the added dimension that the pink stripe fabric gave this block.
I decided to turn every other block to change the direction of the stripes.
I couldn’t help but notice that Sandy did not put the cross pieces in her circles, wonder why…
There is a mistake in this pattern.
When you go to slice segments off the strip set, you should cut them 1-3/4″ (not 3-3/4″).
Easy mistake, 3-3/4″ is the width of the strip set.
Fortunately I was concentrating when I got to this step.
Not my favorite block in the sewing, but the finished product I think is stunning.
As a tip, I used my walking foot to sew the squares together to finish the block.
The circles are a bit bulky to sew over.
With my regular foot the fabric wanted to slide to the side.
The walking foot sewed right over the bulky portions & kept my seams straight.
Block #2 by Minick & Simpson
I sewed this one yesterday on my featherweight machine.
See the accuracy of those points?
I’m going to keep my featherweight out and use it more often, it was fun!
Block #23 by Pat Sloan
This block was easy & fun, my two favorite adverbs when sewing.
I’m accumulating quite a stack of beautiful blocks here.
Until next time,
