Sampler Quilt ~ Block 2

10.24.2013

Block 2 gave me a bit of trouble. This is the first attempt and I measure way too big. Over a 1/2" too big! I messed and messed with it and couldn't get it right, so I too off the last round and started over from the white square.


This one measured too big, too, but not as much, so I trimmed it to size. Still, when I sew this one to another block, I will loose the point on the white fabric. I am okay with that. =) 


Instructions for this block can be found at Donna's Lavender Nest

  3. I am not doing this sew along but you are the second person to have this problem! Just an FYI, maybe it is the directions and not you!

  10. I finally have my coordinating solids so I hope to make my blocks this weekend. I love your fabric placement! That first square looks like a medallion-it's perfect! I worry about my points too; my seams don't match up in the best of circumstances. However I'm doing this sampler for fun & to stretch me so I'll do my best and see how it turns out. :) Yours is going to be great!

  11. I had that problem with a Farmer's wife block yesterday. I kept fiddling with it. After a while though I know it is time to just leave it alone and do something else. Gorgeous fabrics as usual though.
