Well done Kris!
In The Piney Woods of Deep East Texas
Kris, your Union Soldier spooky quilt is going to be awesome. Love your blocks.
In the beautiful Pacific Northwest!
Thanks Judy and Sue.
The new purple is fun. Liking your fabric more and more, Kris.
Thank you Mimi.
Too many irons in the fire. Finally have another block finished.
beautiful Susan. I'm just starting on the October 15 blocks. One of the advantages of being behind is viewing all the gorgeous blocks everyone has already done.
Susan J Crist:Too many irons in the fire.
I can relate to that, Susan. But this block is beautiful. Just the right amount of contrast to make it lovely. Are you staying with the red, blue, and cream colors for all your blocks?
I like your block Susan.
I'm having a terrible time with this one. I have to go back and re cut the squares that should have been 2-3/4" cut into 4 triangles. I cut them 2" and then couldn't figure out why I couldn't get step 4 to work.
Dratted cataracts. (Is that a valid excuse for messing up?)
No, I did cut them right. I cannot get step 4 to go together correctly. I'm doing something wrong. I am not going to give up but this has me flummoxed for sure.
Do we sew the long side of the B dark blue triangle to one side of the 2" A square? What am I seeing wrong?
"Do we sew the long side of the B dark blue triangle to one side of the 2" A square? What am I seeing wrong?"
NO Judy, sew one of the short sides to the 2" square. Sew from the
squared ends to the point. Also if you use Best Press on the squares
before cutting them into triangles you will have better control
See where the pin is pointed? Start sewing from there to the pointed end, If necessary turn the pieces over. Hope this helps.
beautiful block Susan. I have the first 5 done , need to make one more and then start posting. Love seeing everyone's blocks.
Thanks Sue. That's how I did it my first time through and it just didn't look right. But I probably should have attached the other pieces and perhaps it would have worked. Here it is, finally, but not quite right either. Ah well, it is what it is. This block was a nightmare for me.
Judy T-Bellingham:Ah well, it is what it is.
It's good enough for government work, Judy. lol. No really it looks great and you'll never see any of our mistakes once it is quilted. These squares are smaller than what I'm used to making. How about you?
