How exciting is that!
After making 25 of them, I've been thinking about changing my pattern for the block. What! There's been too much thinking going on while I've been sitting and stitching, could you smell the wood burning? If I'm going to change anything, I had better do it now before I go on.
The one on the left is 3" finished, the one in the middle is 2.5", the one on the right is also 2.5" but has a bigger middle. I redrafted the block, the middle is still 1" finished in size but it now looks more like a spool than a bow tie shape. Which one shall I carry on with?
Of course I've been travelling around blogs, looking, comparing, getting more indecisive, how unlike me! Which one do you prefer?
Edit: I did a paste up of options without seam allowances and have decided to stick with what I've been doing. Spools are all different so there is no right or wrong, just personal preference.
I had an impulse buy yesterday, again, so unlike me. It's true. I was on my way to the pharmacy and passed a shop that had a closing down sale. Look what I found and bought home in the boot of the car. It fits lots of little bits and pieces and now I've got rid of a couple of those plastic drawer sets and made room in my bookcase for more books.
Until next time, happy stitching.
