Midget Blocks - #53
This adorable little block went together with very little trouble at all until it was time to sew the sub-units together. It did take me quite awhile to figure out the placement of each little unit. Thankfully, there wasn't someone standing by with a timer!! At one point, I thought there was something wrong with the paper-piecing pattern or that I had placed one of the pieces of fabric in the wrong place. I also blamed my difficulty on the fact that I had not slept one wink the night before....oh...I do like to make excuses! Angela from soscrappy posted the same block earlier this week and she had the same trouble I did so I feel I was definitely in good company. As she stated there was no assembly information included in the instructions - I think it was definitely a brain-builder. This block is also known as Winged Square and I used a pink fabric with little blue flowers. I am happy with the way it turned out.
Blocks 51, 53 and 52
I have decided to use this block for my Rainbow Scrap Challenge this week because I was away visiting my big sister Glenda instead of working on the pink log cabin blocks I had planned. It was really good to spend time with Glenda. I stayed over at her place on Thursday night and I didn't get home until about 9 last night. We spent quite a bit of our time chatting and we also visited some local second hand shops. Definitely time well spent!!
