Since I keep promising to show you my first block of In My Garden, by Hatched & Patched, I thought I would post an 'in progress' picture, because even though this block looks nearly done, it honestly isn't!
For the life of me I cannot figure out a way to make these blocks line up properly. This is one of those patterns where you cut squares in half to make the triangles around the left-hand side blocks, where you are supposed to make long strips of different fabrics and cut them to size to fit around and next to the blocks. There are very few exact measurements and I must admit that even though I was really looking forward to stitching this project, it is very slowly but surely driving me around the bend.
What I need is the advice of a more experienced quilter and that will happen over the weekend. I'm sure my Mum will be able to sort this problem out.
And on that frustrated note I'm off to play with my furry friend Henrietta and her little baby: block 5 of Henrietta Whiskers, the free BOM by Bunny Hill Designs.
Thank you for all your lovely comments on my painting of the Scottish sheep.
