Catherine's "May Basket" from BOM 2015

This is the first block I've made from this quilt. I found it quite a challenge - my precision wasn't always good enough but I unpicked lots and am now at the stage where I'm happy with the block. I aim to improve every block :-). Big lessons for me are 1) to watch Jinny's lesson all the way through (several times if necessary) before starting to sew 2) tack some of the tricky corners/angles really helps reduce the need to unpick. Taking takes more time, but it helped me 3) hand sew awkward areas
