My Lucky Stars QAL blocks are giving me a hard time right now, I used a generous 1/4" seam for some rows and a scant 1/4" seam for others, so now when I go to join them the seams/corners don't match up. #perfectionistproblems
I decided the best approach was to step away for a bit, but I really wanted to sew something! Enter Cheryl's Just One Slab project. I dug though my tiny scrap basket and managed to pull out enough pinks for this project. Seriously, I have a tiny scrap basket, this was the only slab I could make because I don't have enough scraps in other colors for these big 15.5" blocks. Yikes, I could probably get asked to quit linking up to Amanda Jean's blog by admitting this :)
Anyway, here was the start of my block. This slab sewing stuff is fun, but it required a little more thought than I expected. My type A personality had a hard time with the randomness and really wanted to make a log cabin block.
And... my finished block!
Now here is a silly question for everyone- how the heck do you send blocks? Don't they get all wrinkly in the mail? I'm guessing I could put it between two pieces of cardboard to send, but this is a 15.5" block so I feel like the enveloped and postage to do that could really add up. Any ideas?
Linking up to Finish It Up Friday.
