The Force Is Strong..

Well it wouldn't be Star Wars Day without some corny pun or other!

Today I have achieved a few of the things I had to do, and a few that I wanted to do.  I had attached the binding to my embroidery pouch before breakfast, done the weekly shop before lunch and then when the plates were cleared away, I got on and made Jo's block for Brit Bee.

A mixture of mostly Liberty print and low volume triangles, and the instruction to arrange in any way we saw fit.  I immediately saw a hexagon.

I am still of the opinion that bias stretch is an urban myth, so my block came together really easily.  Some of my points are a little out, but I hope Jo is as forgiving as the fabric from arm's length!

Seeing as it was alternating between rain showers and gale force winds today, I had to resort to indoor shots...

May the Fourth be with you all xxx
Now to get that binding stitched down...

  4. So very pretty! I love how in one shot it looks like it's made with white fabric, and the other it looks off-white or beige - and ALWAYS love Liberty!

  20. The block is lovely, I'm getting tempted with a triangle quilt, triangles seem better than HSTs for some reason. Love the Lego star wars characters. I'm sure Lego was just bricks when we were kids!

  21. Your block is lovely and I think bias stretch is an urban myth although I think thread cutters really help!

  24. " no bias stetch" for you Obi, 'cos you can clearly have the force. But for us non Jedi masters, it is a curse.

  25. Love the block, but love the comment about bias even more. I totally ignore any instruction that tells me to cut on the bias, and I've never noticed a problem. God, keep me in ignorance on this one issue please, as it really saves me a lot of trouble!
