My Tested Blocks –
My group tested 13 of the 100 Blocks. We randomly received patterns and didn’t know (and had no choice) as to which techniques we would be testing. All Blocks finish to 12” square (12-1/2” unfinished).
Jenifer has been in 5 issues and on the cover of two – including this one. Using solids and both appliqué and piecing, she created a fun block.
My Block – I did have a bit of a challenge with this block and as you can see I didn’t get my “crosses” straight. This is an example of when Block Testing catches a problem in the directions and it gets corrected.
I have 5 more blocks to share. So come back on Monday and I’ll finish the story. There are still even more blocks in Volume 10 and I hope you will get a chance to check them out.
Hope you’ve had some fun and found a few blocks you might want to make! Sign up on Quiltmaker’s Blog and the Designer’s Blogs for a change to win prizes.
Hope you’ve enjoyed the Blog Tour and viewing many of the blocks in Volume 10 and seeing the blocks I tested. Come back to see me soon!
