The first was a heart block and once I managed to get my quarter inch seam going properly this is what it looked like.
So two of them sewn together with a border for a tablemat looks like this.
The next block was a Shooting Star block.
It looks like this.......
and the tablemat looks like this.
Although these are very simple blocks I can tell you that I am doing plenty of " sewing backwards" ( unpicking ) while I learn the importance of quarter inch seams and careful pinning and matching up of seams.
So now I have three tablemat fronts completed. I'm making progress !!!!
Once you start to learn the precision processes of patchwork it makes you appreciate the work and talent that produces beautiful quilts like these.
Hope I can do something as lovely one day.
