|How cool is that stamp/label?!?|
Now I can say I have! Katie from 'We Bee Modern' sent us fabric to make our February blocks for her. She chose 'On the Plus Side' on page 126. Our packages included 4 strips from Lotta Jansdotter's Echo for the pluses and two strips of a dark quilters linen for the background.
I chopped my strips up into tiny (and I mean TINY....1.5 x 1.5 squares) pieces and went to work. I wasn't terribly hesitant going into this block, but the tiny pieces proved to be a little challenging. When you are working with larger pieces, and 1/8 of an inch here or there isn't going to make a huge difference. But on 1.5 in strips, yooou better be precise. Or so I found out. After a little bit of fabric wiggling and some unsewing, my block came together pretty decently (or so I thought!). I forgot to give it a hair cut before I took the pictures. Oops!
I was pleased with the final product and will be sending it back to Canada shortly! Thanks Katie for kicking off our bee with such a great block!
