I spent this weekend catching up on some of my Sugar Blocks!
The one above is the Febuary block called Explore. This one really got on my nerves! If I had enough fabric I would probably redo it. You may be able to see some distortion…I was trying to press it into submission:) Well, the block won. It should finish at 12.5″, but it is 12″. I am going to just make do and leave it. I suspect that do to a lot of seams that I slowly ate up a little seam allowance here and there and it caught up to me. If I have to I can border it and then square it up to the proper size.
This block is called Mercy.
This one I thought would be harder, but it wasn’t! I think I could have used more contrast in the star points….more red. As I grow as a quilter I am trying not to over analyze everything and just keep moving forward. Less ripping, more stitching. So this one will stay as it is too!
Now to finishing April’s block and I will be back on track.
For all you guys doing the Triangle Quilt Along….
If you opted not to trim the zig zag edges of your quilt, Lorna at Sew Fresh Quilts shared a great tutorial on how to bind those and work inside those tricky corners! This is a great tutorial even if you are not using it for this quilt, so check it out and say hello from The Sassy Quilter!
Keep it Sassy♥
