It's been a topsy turvy day so far...
Highs - getting new fabric! My brother gave me a gift voucher for Backstitch for my birthday (not a spontaneous choice I might add...) and I bought these:
I've been trying to make some log cabin blocks for one of the group projects for Siblings Together, but they won't come out right. The first block came out 1/2" too small, then the second 1/4" too small. I checked the fabric sizes after the first one, but then realised that it's my seam allowances that are out :(
NB - I realised this when looking at my Half Moon Modern snuggle quilt - one row being 3" shorter than the other....
So I decided to stick the two together and use them as a little pot holder for my porridge for when I moan like Goldilocks every morning! That's worked quite well, but the quilting and binding weren't as good as I was hoping.
How long does it take before the picture in my head comes anywhere near the real thing????
In the meantime, I guess it's a case of practice, practice, practice!
