Spurred on by making KatCam's Retro Flower blocks for Brit Bee, I decided I might as well bite the bullet and get on with mine at last! I can't believe I made my first four way back in May.
I have been working on lots of little projects lately, such is the lure of sunshine, Olympics and children underfoot, and so time at the sewing machine has been somewhat limited, but these were top of my 'Big' list...
These are not enjoyable blocks to make; I hate pressing seams on a good day, and these are a blinking nightmare. It's the extra sashing between the petals - I could crank out simple drunkard's path blocks all day, and I probably will, someday soon, but these - never again, if I can help it!
However I love, love, love how they look; I love that these are made using my precious Denyse Schmidt stash and I love that I can now visualise the quilt I will be making.
I see many happy hours ahead arranging and then re-arranging these blocks!
