La bicyclette bleu is thicker than I remembered it Cheesy (fun with a book in the bookshelf block that matches an actual book)

Wait til you see how thick the cowboy boots are. I tried to do a theme with each bookshelf block. A couple of the novelties were a tad thick but danynn said she liked variety! Smiley

I've posted my last square for donniesgirl - it's not the one I started out making but it's what I ended up with  Cheesy   I'd love to see someone tackle Block 13 - Lattice Smocking and be successful at it.  I had the center all finished but no matter how much steaming, wetting, stretching and pinning, I could not get it to 5" square so it hit the garbage, which almost made me cry since it was alot of work.

I've also posted another for kbrison.

Speaking of the pinwheel of Donniegirls. Has anyone else noticed the typo? One line says 2 3/4 squares and the very next lines says 3 3/4 squares....I at first thought I my eyes were playing tricks on me, but no it is there. LOL

The block in questions: Block 22: Origami pinwheel

Needs:

4 x 2 inches squares in red and 4 more matching 2 inches squares, ie 8 in total

Cut 4 x 3 inches squares in red and 4 more matching 3 inches squares, ie 8 in total.


I have yet to start on it, had to wait on more fabric to .come in. FABRIC finally got here late yesterday I DO think UPS was dragging just to make me sit here and watch out the window.

I have lovely 30's prints now. And they are so cute. More whites and black.  So on with block making after all washed today.

Yes - if you read the comments, she acknowledges the typo...but I'm not sure why she didn't fix it in the tutorial.

Yeah I went and read the comments. Yet she never stated the correct.

If you take the lower you get a 4.5 center. And the higher 6.5

Doing the numbers I get: cut them 3.

Half and inch for seam will have you 2.5 each, joining the four will give you a 5 inch square.


Is that not correct?

Carolmb, not quite right - you still have the 1/4 seam allowance on the outside of the center because you haven't attached it to anything so you will have a 5" center like you want.  Go with 2 3/4, it works.

Thanks Homerof2, I was thinking it would be under when you added the boarder around the center. I do so get confused when trying to figure out sizes. I haven't started on one yet. Am still washing the fabric the came in yesterday. I had to stop and let the girls do their laundry for school.  I will try one later today or tomorrow. There is another one I am looking at trying as well.

well and wonderment
carol

and now that I have black!!! I can finish up the rest of the international ones too
