First I did finish this top for a local sewing group.
I picked up some blocks awhile back, when I started measuring them I soon discovered that they were all different in size. Now I’m know to be a little lazy at times…. So I decided to do a 4 patch nosegay pattern. Problem 1, I wanted to tie this quilt so I needed larger seams. Problem 2 all the patterns I found were for more blocks smaller in size than what I had. Problem 3 changing measurements without hubby ‘s brains. Disaster!!
So did I want to wait until evening when Hubby came home? Nope, I got my paper and pencil out ,drew what I wanted on it then added the amount of seam allowance on that ,then paper pieced the block. Worked like a charm.
No extra trimming other than for paper piecing seams.
Now the fun beings! 😀
I’m going to use the brown in all blocks with these fabrics to give a more scrappy look.
Four blocks done.
Now back to my sewing machine, Deb
