Another block finished
I had thought I would pick this block for our monthly challenge block in my small quilting group - but after fighting with the pattern for hours I give up. I did finish the block, but will pick another pattern. We decided on the blocks being 9 inches and it was hard to find a 9 inch Card Trick - and I'm not good at cutting down the measurements of a larger block.
I finally found one on about.com - what a mistake - I should remember that about.com is mostly a disaster waiting to happen - or perhaps it has already happened. The instructions were inaccurate to start with - and the direction for assembly were iffy at best. I had to recut some of the sections because they simply were too large - but finally I got it all done.
I love the block - hate the process. So I will keep this one - I love how it turned out with the different greens - and pick another block for our challenge next month when it is my turn to pick. But I do have two blocks for my green/white quilt now.
Next I will work on some friendship swap blocks - those are going to be a lot more fun!!!
What is your favorite block to make - and your least favorite?
