Craftsy Block of the Month 2012 »
Type of item: Home Decor
What are you most proud of?
I'll admit it. I'm proud of my points and how the stripes matched up within the Balkan Puzzle. I was super careful with my cutting and pressing during the construction of this block and it worked out great in the end.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
I'll admit I didn't use the "Magic Triangle" method with either of my blocks. The idea of working with bias edges all the way through isn't a thrilling one. I stretch my fabric out enough on my own without any help. The only other advice I could give is to be careful when you're pressing these. When needed, the seams should go opposite directions when you go to match them up. That's were perfect points come from.
