Project

Block of the Month - Summer

What are you most proud of? Jan - Learning new techniques and putting them into practice quickly. Feb - Squares that line up properly. Mar - Making 4 whole blocks without using any new fabrics. What advice would you give someone starting this project? January - I think pressing the seams inward (towards the black) makes it neater on the back than if I had done white stripes and pressed outwards. February - It takes ages to get through the measure-cut-sew-cut-iron process to make all the triangles, but putting the blocks together is really quick, especially if you pin each row and chain piece both blocks. March - I think the blocks look best if you use as many different fabrics as possible and don't cut the strips the same width - if they're too much the same it looks like all the corners should match perfectly too, and who needs that pressure?
