Sewing: 501 Quilt Blocks Week 30

This week's block is called Album.

I dropped into the quilting shop at Wagga and picked up that gorgeous dark green fabric.

You know, I'm still unpicking at least one seam on these things still. Sometimes my brain can't work these things out.

Sewing: 501 Quilt Blocks Week 29

Annie's Choice is this weeks block.

If Annie really had her choice she would have told me to use a bolder coloured fabric.

Too late now and I'm not redoing it.

But otherwise, this was actually quite a nice block. Shame I messed it up, really.

Sewing: 501 Quilt Blocks Week 28

This week is the Devil's Claw.

Another very time consuming, small and fiddly block. I would not like to know how many hours I have put into making this quilt thus far.

And because the back is a little bulky with seams, no amount of ironing would make it sit nice and flat.

Sewing: 501 Quilt Blocks Week 27

I have no idea where they get some of these names from.

The block this week is called "54-40 or Fight". Whatever is that meant to mean?

I guess it kind of looks like a ninja star? If you squint?
