Friday Block Party
Sewing this week has been a bit limited as I've probably had the swine flu. Symptoms were not particularly bad, but feeling oh so tired all the time. Making blocks is about my limit!! The first one is called game cocks (which according to wiki is a type of chook and in the US an athletic team). This came together beautifully, even with all those tiny pieces (10" block).
My second block, blindman's fancy, (12") was quite a challenge! My 3 & 11/16 inch centre (can you believe that measurement!) was too small so ended up being re-cut at 4". I then needed to adjust the white inner border to match the outside border. The light outside was fading so I had to dash into the garden to get the last few rays! But glad to get that one finished. Both patterns came from Quilters Cache.
