Cozy Afternoon - Block #5
Today is the release of the 5th block for the Cozy Afternoon quilt. It has another adorable embroidery block that you can chose to make for the centre. If you are not into embroidery, you can make a pieced block instead. Hop over to Jacquelynne's to see more ideas and to sign up for the free patterns if you haven't already.
The instructions are excellent, but due to "user error", I did have a bit of an issue in finishing my block.
I pieced some scrappy strips and when I cut them to attach to the centre block, I cut the wrong angle. UGH. Clearly this is not going to work! Do over. Don't you wish we could have "do-overs" in life as well as in quilting?!?!
Oh well, I easily redid that corner piece and cut it correctly, and here's my finished block.
If you have been sewing along with this project, you will be happy to learn that you can purchase adorable note cards and labels with the Cozy Afternoon theme - click here to see them.
And as always, Jacquelynne is giving away a pattern to one of my blog readers. This is the giveaway pattern. Just leave a comment below and tell me if you've ever tried punchneedle before? I have the tools and the interest but haven't tried it yet.
The draw will be closed next Sunday and the winner announced on Monday.
