Moving along to catch up, block six is next. I picked a large scrap of purple fabric for the house as the bottom bit of this pattern has a piece 18-inches wide. It has some squares on point at the bottom, and these still look like flower boxes to me. So, I pulled some flower fabric to use. I love this snapdragon print, but it is to close to the purple I have selected for the house.
So, I went back to the daffodils. More contrast will look better.
OK, I like that so I cut the required pieces. I double checked the sizes this time!
Lots of HSTs meant drawing a lot of lines.
The top of the house has five flying geese sections that are not the same, so I laid out the pieces carefully, chain pieced, then laid them out again to check the placement.
Then the top section was pieced.
Assembling the top two rows, I got this. The points are so far off I cannot stand it.
And so the streak continues, I have to frog something on every one of these blocks.
Sewing again with more pins to keep the edges lined up. It isn’t perfect, but it is as good as it is going to get.
This block has a lot of pieces. Carefully following the steps, it went together.
Chain piecing all the squares on point helped streamline the assembly.
Finally, all done!
So, now I am caught up. The next two blocks are on the list for completion in April. Are you sewing this week?
