It was not a very auspicious beginning for my Nearly Insane Quilt! Nevertheless, the first two blocks are done.
I started with what was a really easy block and can you believe this is what I did?!?
I also forgot there were points to match in the centre of the pieces!
The fabric looked so pretty when I cut it out – it took me ages to do that, as I fussy cut those bouquets! I picturized it as flowers from behind a trellis. I don’t think I like it very much put together. The original block has two strong contrast fabrics. Perhaps quilting will make a difference?
Here is how it looks now.
The blocks will be all placed on point, so I will photograph them like that.
Number of pieces – 29
Level of difficulty – Easy.
Partly ( corners) foundation paper pieced
This block was, surprisingly, a toughie! The centre flower strip finishes at 3 and 5/8″. I could not draft it on Quilt Assistant, so I traced the template from the book.
Traced the block template from the draft in book by Liz Lois
I pieced all the strips first before joining them on the block template. I quite love this!
Number of pieces – 29 (Again!)
Level of difficulty – Easy ( If you don’t have to draft the block template).
Strips pieced first and then assembled on foundation paper.
I did mention that I am working on these blocks only two days a week? Which means you have to wait for that long to see the next block! I bid you goodnight with a quick peep into what is cooking next Wednesday!
Another look at the first two together…
