Do you ever have one of those days where you realize you probably just shouldn’t be sewing? Well, that was me doing the March block. It wasn’t that it was difficult, it was just me. I re-sewed the center five times. Five. Times…and it’s still not perfect but I can live with it! Granted it was late at night and I probably just should have set it aside and tried again the next day but it’s done now.
This month’s color was orange. I used my two different backgrounds and added an orangey-gold for the center pinwheel.
The instructions have you make what I call the Heart Flying Geese method, one of my favorites!
Do you ever have this happen? You pin at the points that need to match and the in-between parts aren’t the same size? Want an easy fix? Simply place the longer side (in the photo that would be the top layer) against the feed dogs. Your machine will take care of the rest.
See…all better! No ripples, tucks or wrinkles. Works every time.
Here are my first three blocks. I’m really liking how this is turning out! Next months color is purple and it’s my official turn to be a blogger (I smell prizes…)
You can get the free instructions here…but only for the month of March! Did I mention that there are awesome prizes too? Thanks for putting this all together Patterns by Jen! You can check out the March bloggers too:
