Correction, Wonky Churn Dash and Death of a Project
Yesterday I showed you how I made a wonky churn dash block for a guild challenge. Here’s a little correction: I said I pressed the seams to the blue throughout. Actually when you add the corner half-square triangles, you should press toward them so your seams will nest in the middle. That is if they even meet in the middle. Additionally, if you really want this block to lay flat, you can press seams open as another option.
Today I made another block, starting with a blue center. Make four of each of the following units (bars and half-square triangles):
Trim the seam allowances to reduce bulk:
Do a casual layout of your wonky units:
Sew the units into rows and cut straight edges so you can sew the rows together:
Square up your block. In this case, I made it a rectangle.
As for The Animal Collage Project, for now the hippo is dead. Poor Hippo. I just can’t find the love to get back to this project. Sometimes you just have to set things aside and move on. Hippo for Sale…
I’ll be back after my sweater class on Saturday for an update.
