This is a block I’ve been working on for my Cottage Bee. The assignment was to make a square that would represent our idea of patchwork. This was a monster block (just my style) measuring 15.5 inches.
Things were chugging along-I even planned it all out, sketched and calculated measurements and I was so proud of myself thinking that I would send John a bunch of scraps from these great fabrics. I always feel good about sending back scraps.
Anyhoo, then I started sewing and low and behold…I miscalculated. The small squares were…well, too small by 1\4 inch. Bugger! By the way, this was the same day I miscalculated fabric baking -by 2 YARDS! I guess I shouldn’t have done any math that day. After I recut it was all fine. So, voila, Le Patchwork for a quilting Dad!
Happy Father’s Day!
