Day 331: My creative space
I've been a bit hopeless with my "Oh Beehave" MMQG quilt block swap and was well and truly behind on the November and January blocks. Even once we moved back home, I had no time to sew and was a bit apprehensive about making "wonky" log cabin blocks. Anyway, a week ago I got my act together, pulled out the sewing machine and fabric and have put together blocks for Gina and Anna over the last two weekends. Verdict - wonky log cabin blocks are brilliant! They are a forgiving construction method for people (like me) who aren't very good at sewing straight and muck up measurements, as they are meant to be a bit crooked and you can just add on bits if you measure up too short, which I always seem to manage to do. Both blocks went in the mail on Monday and here's a shot of Anna's, which had "Moroccan" and "spicy" as the theme. I am quite pleased with it and I hope Anna is too.
