You may recall me mentioning that I was participating in Don't Call Me Betsy's Lucky Stars BOM club. If you want to join in go here.
Well we got our first block as promised and I decided to hit the ground running and now that my machine is back in action I got straight to it.
First things first you have to choose your fabrics. When I was looking at what other members had made (already!) I noticed that some of them looked seriously 3D and that was the effect I wanted to try and get too. So I finally came to this colour selection, I reckon I spent an hour hemming and hawing, it's not easy choosing colours is it?
I spent the whole of the afternoon making this block, not because it is difficult but because I made a couple of mistakes, for example. When Elizabeth says make sure the fabric covers the pertinent section there is no messing around with that. Look, do you see why?
Also make sure you double check where you put your colours. See picture below bottom left quadrant.
But the end result is really very rewarding. I love my block and glad I was letting out a couple of "argghhs".
