Onto Block number two of Meg's quilt which was really easy to put together. I went to my patchwork box and found all sorts of left over shapes from previous quilts. I had six diamonds left over with the papers in so I made up two more and got hand stitching to make an eight pointed star for block 2.
After making a 13 x 13" block as my first square I have had a rethink and decided to scale down to 12 x 12 " because I can use some block tutorials online which come out at that size. I can still use the tiny squares one but I will need to press it, cut it down and straighten it up evenly.
I'm enjoying exploring old techniques and searching for new ones both on the machine and for hand sewing.
