I'm glad you're back! If you're a new reader, welcome!
I finished another Craftsy block yesterday, this one was for September. I was really looking forward to the curved pieced blocks, but then when I had to sew them I wasn't as enthusiast as I expected. I was so excited in the beginning because I wanted to try my curve master foot which I bought a few months ago, but never tested. I have to say that I'm not impressed at all. The videos I watched about it made it look so easy! Yet when I got to sew the curves the fabrics moved away from the edge resulting in a too narrow seam allowance. They didn't butt up against the foot's edge. I decided to ditch the foot and follow Amy's method of making the units. That resulted in about an hour of pinning of the 16 curves and then sewing and re-sewing most of them to get a narrower seam allowance. All in all I can tell it will not be my go-to block for sure :) I'm trying to find excuses already how to avoid making the second block for September which is basically the same technique, same amount of squares, but in a different arrangement. I'll probably get to it once I get over myself :)
I took a picture of the block I finished, a little different than Amy's, but the same concept.
Doesn't it look like a pretty flower? I love this look! When I started to arrange the squares they reminded me of Mickey Mouse :)
This weekend I'll be probably working on piecing the back for this Monkey Quilt:
Yes, as I looked at the picture I realized I could've arranged the squares so the polka dot 4 patches would face the same direction, but guess what? I will not take this quilt top apart! I am thinking if I should put a border on it? What do you think?
I'm linking up to WIP Wednesday @ Freshly pieced
I'll be signing off now because I just can't keep my eyes open :)
'Til we blog again! :)
