So as some of you know, I am working on my Posh Penelope by Sew Kind of Wonderful.
I showed you this picture yesterday. The reason I am showing you this today is after they are trimmed as you see on the right. There is another set that the curve goes in the opposite direction and those two are sewn together. to make make the block below.
As you can see this block has already been trimmed. Yes, more trimming.
Well...Isn't this block pretty?
You do not want what happened on the right....no point! Unfortunately, I have a lot of those so far. Once you make that cut, there is no going back.
So yesterday I got the bright ideal to mark my ruler with a dry erase marker because this next step can make or break ya. I have already made full squares and four of them the sides do not line up. Hence marking the ruler.
This is the stage I am at now. Trimming again. This marking makes it so much easier and when I sew the actual done blocks together, hopefully, the corners will match.
We will see.
As of now I have 48 of these at this point. I have 72 more to go, including putting the sides and top on and then trim.
Then as I was counting my done blocks and the blocks in the makings, my math was off. I need to cut out one more block to make 42. Now call this wishful thinking but I just keep hoping when I have all of these done that that one block will show up????
Babysitting today, I was up this morning at two and thought since I wasn't sleeping I would be productive. Hope I am not too grumpy today.
