WIP Wednesday

Just look at this beauty!

It arrived in the post from Nin. Isn't it great!?!

The photo just doesn't do it justice. The seams are so crisp and straight and the points are perfect. If only I could sew like that *sigh*

I've been busy too. I finished the block that I showed you last week.

I wish that I had sewn it when I was in the swing of making these blocks and made my other bee blocks. The polkadot border is a bit wiggly and the mitred corners are a bit wonky, even after I unpicked them twice. That said, I love how the fabrics work together.

And I've sewn another block too.
Oops! My allergy to ironing continues!
I WAS really happy with it until I was formatting the photos for this post and I realised that depending on how you position the block, the unicorn is either going uphill or downhill. Luckily its an easy fix as the outer hexagon is hand sewn onto the background, so all I need to do is unpick and rotate the hexagon slightly.

I'm really enjoying experimenting with different blocks. Any suggestions what I should try next? (Remember I'm a newbie to this quilting lark though, so no ridiculously difficult suggestions please...)

I thought I'd make up a mosaic as I go along showing all the blocks that I amass. The blocks will not necessarily be in their final position, but it will give us all an idea what the final quilt might look like!

  5. This quilt is going to be so cool - love the aqua, orange & grey combo! I have a tutorial on my blog for a snail trail block - easy peasy compared to the blocks you've been making and looks pretty cool ;o)
