Oops; my completed blocks to posts are out of order. I try not to cram too much into any single post so I’ll save my spool of thread for tomorrow or so. This is yesterday’s block by Elizabeth Dackson. Once again I’m looking at a picture of a block that I did not iron before I took the picture….! I used my Accuquilt Go to cut out all the 2 1/2″ squares as well as the half square triangles for the other 4 pieces so I know this one really is straight – even if it doesn’t look like it!
I bought Elizabeth’s book – Quilter’s Paper-Piecing Workbook – and if you like paper piecing or maybe haven’t tried it and are looking for a good book to describe how to do it, I would definitely recommend her book. She explains things clearly and succinctly and it has quite a number of projects in it.
In the meantime, looks like I need to re-work this other Splendid Sampler block. I thought it said 2 5/8″ for the pieces that go with the flying geese but it said 2 3/8″. The short story is it made them too long and too wide. Those points will never fly! I tried to correct it along the way but that didn’t work. I can salvage the middle square and maybe the outside corners on this block, but I’ll need to re-work those flying geese or it’ll drive me crazy to look at that mess!
