Amy's fabulous instructions for these blocks (here) are brilliant and easy to follow with great tips and straightforward photo's (thanks Amy). These blocks do take a lot of work in the cutting department, but wow, they are so much fun to make, I'm having a blast!
There is perhaps a little too much colour in my blocks and the eye doesn't really know where to rest, but I'm going with it. I'm trying to mainly only use what is already in my stash, though some of these are not that old!
Oops, upside down strawberries anyone?!
I think the best hint I can give is to start these blocks with a brand new sparkling rotary cutter blade!! If you take these blocks on you will be doing a lot of cutting and you want to stay on the sharp edge (just keep the fingers out of the way)!
My wonderful sister sent me the most fabulous gift a sister can give a quilter last year....how cute is this little iron? I can sit this right next to my sewing machine and iron each and every seam as I make them. This saves a lot of time running to the ironing board every time I need to flatten a seam. Invaluable!
Woohoo, I'm in fabric playing heaven!
What are you making this week that is giving you joy?
