Today I started the next block on the Underground Rail Road Sampler - Bow Tie...
and all was good until I had to trim them with a 6 and a half inch triangle square up ruler! Oh boy!!! I tried all the rulers I have looking for horizontal lines and diagonal lines - now I am confused so think I will ask at group tonight....the instructions said not to iron the blocks flat, so I didn't, now when I have a peek some of them are not meeting up correctly in the centre...honestly I told them to lie flat and behave!!! So some unsewing will have to happen and then I shall try again!!
I tried to hand sew the strips on the quilt as you go quilt here, boy that was awkward!!! So I thought, well, I will give it a go on the machine and do you know it took me an hour and ten minutes to sew them all down......why didn't I do that straight away I ask myself????? Must be very silly I decided!! Lol!!
So here is the finished quilt, I have managed to get some similar colours together, I think one row is the wrong way around, but hey, it is staying where it is now!! (Sorry Tania, I am quite happy with this now so it is staying here!!)
You get this row of stitching on the back, but as it is on the back I can live with it!!
Off to cook some dinner!
