This was my block from last week's Block Party. It is named Envelope Motif (not sure why?)
This block started out being enjoyable, but I was soon disappointed at how much wastage there was (loads of little triangles) once I had cut it up. Idid think I had enough of the dark red but discovered very quickly that I hadn't. So, cutting a long story very short, I trimmed it down until I had enough fabric to fit. My finished block was only 9 1/2" instead of the 12 1/2". And my points were lousy. If I made this one again I would definitely use a different set of instructions. However, that is my fifth block finished and all I have used is scraps. So that's something for nothing in my book.
