For this project, there is a picture of a quilt which I need to reproduce.
No pattern (just a block illustration)
No fabric calculations.
Here is the project, which Harriet has named Homespun.
I did the fabric calculations last night and set about making a sample block today. In fairness to those who are working through the book and have not yet got to this project, I'm not going to give away too much. Besides, I'm not all that confident in my ability to get it right.
Here is my sample of Block A.
It's a combined grid block, with familiar units in there - 4 patch, 9 patch and solid squares. But what is that one in the centre? We've not come across this one before (naughty Harriet)! A bit of head-scratching between attempt number one and attempt number 2 and I got it sorted. Looking at it later I realised what it was - (sometimes my brain hurts) :)
There is no grid size given either, so I figured that I need to work it out from the picture, or simply choose a size I like. Not being particularly brave, I kept the grid the same as what Harriet has used (I think).
I must say that I'm pretty chuffed that I managed to work out how to do the block. A mere 2 months ago I couldn't sew a 4 patch without directions!
I have a weekend workshop to attend, so won't get much further than this till next week. Cheers!
