Well, here is my 11th Saturday Sampler block.
It was very challenging...my worst block to date!
Block Name: Star Crossover
Block Designer: Diane Nagle
Pattern from: Quiltmaker 100 blocks magazine (#67)
The corner blocks went well, and the centre square was easy :)
But the other blocks would not come out to the correct size.
Double checked my cutting...perfect.
Double checked my seam allowance...tried again with a smaller "scant" seam allowance...still no good.
I just could not get the blocks to be the right size or match up in the seams.
See what I mean?!? No amount of ripping and resewing could convince these points to line up.
And so, I gave up and decided this would be part of the backing of the quilt that my Saturday Sampler blocks might become.
It was not a good choice of project to tackle for National Quilt Day!
But I did get to spend the day with some of my fellow mini quilt lovers and that was lots of fun!
