The Skill Builder Sampler...
Leila will focus on a different quilting skill and provide tutorials for three 12 inch quilt blocks using the month's skill.
Skills: Cutting, ¼ inch seam allowance and value.
Blocks: Log Cabin and Around the World
I completely blame the fact that I was cutting fabric, whilst cooking dinner and watching 3 boys (we had an extra round for tea)! I've ended up with the same fabric for all the middle pieces of the lighter coloured blocks. The darker blocks however I am happy with.
I shall be cutting some more fabric and trying again - this time paying more attention, now however I'm having a glass of wine to comiserate my fall at the first month's hurdle! - at least hubby had a chuckle over it!
I usually cut the wrong size by about a quarter of an inch and get really annoyed with myself. Nice blocks though.
They are great, even with the opps :) It could add character to the quilt! Love it!
