I am thrilled to finally do this post . . .
Merrimack block one is complete and boy was it a bit of learning curve,
but I loved it . . . . A lot
So last time I was up to this bit, where I was sewing these corner bit s in, they all went in perfectly, with no problems . . . .
So next I had to do these sections, not to difficult really . . .
Then came this section, a little more tricky
But on the upside I am now really good at set in seams and Y seams
Then I reached this point and I was soo excited, but wait can you see the problem?
Yep I had stitched the little triangles in the wrong way, so 1 episode of Downton Abbey, and alot of reverse sewing later and my block was back in pieces
The next night though . . . . .
It looked like this . . .
Then I just had to stitch my little stars
Each little star had five of these little diamond shapes, they were pretty small
My first star finished
And then all eight of them completed
And after a little appliqué
. . . . Taa Daa . . . .
My completed Merrimack centre block
Just in time as I suspect block two will be heading my way in the next week or so
There has been lots happening here in the egg household, so I have lots to show you. So stay tuned for some more posts coming very soon
