I actually made the SECOND block first, of Grandmother's Choice. Not on purpose - I didn't notice until I started writing this blogpost. But I'm very glad to have this one DONE! It took me the better part of a whole day, a a couple of tries - - the first try was torn apart a couple of times, and finally tossed. The second attempt was torn apart once, redrafted, recut, and sewn together twice - - but FINALLY it is sized correctly, points are perfect, and I no longer have a burning desire to stab myself in the neck with a seam ripper. The pdf for the pattern did not print correctly, so I had to draft the pattern myself. Here's the post for "Amethyst"
I've decided to go with red and black reproduction fabrics.
