When Jenna and Melissa announced the Sew Intertwined QAL back in July, they failed to mention that the woven block had partial seams..... but if you don't try new techniques, you'll never learn new techniques. I decided not to tackle these blocks in the evenings this last week, and waited till I had plenty of time today.
I don't know why I was making such a fuss. Thanks to great tutorials and a bit of common sense, they went very very smoothly.
This would be another great block for a whole quilt.
I've also appliqued my dresden for the centre of the quilt to the background fabric - in the end I went for machine blanket stitch in a thread to match the background, which means you can see the stitches - I like it. Just need to do the centre now.
You may remember that I mentioned a few months back that it was the year of baby boys? Well, the baby boy due in October decided that today was the day he wanted to see the world. Sebastian was born this afternoon by C-Section weighing 3lb 12oz (the other end of the scale to Joshua at 12lb 2oz!). Mum and baby are both doing well, but the quilt isn't quite finished! In fact, it's barely started - just one of thirty-five/six blocks completed.... better get a move on! I've started cutting fabric so I can sit and piece tomorrow.
