I've finally made my first block.....
I've decided I'm going to start with Row A and work my way along it. Figure if I do that it'll stop me from picking out all the easy (I mean less hard) ones.... making them first then loosing heart when I hit the tough stuff. So... that's A1 done now A2 is looming. I thought I was doing well putting together 28 pieces of fabric into a 5" (unfinished) square. How will I cope with 40... with medication that's how!
I did start DJ last Christmas (2010) day. This is as far as I got....
I don't know what possessed me to cut it out this way. I hand pieced the centre then hid it away to avoid working on the surrounding pieces. Have any of you done it this way? Did it work? I haven't decided if I'll scrap it or not... yet. I'm thinking that a 5" square of background fabric and some applique 'seeds' is more up my street.... except for those darned meeting points that is.
Well..... no one said this was going to be easy.... did they?
Love seeing and taking inspiration from all of your blocks...... keep up the good.... nay GREAT work!
