Sarah asked us all to make two spiderweb blocks. She provided excellent instructions on how to draw out the paper pieced pattern. She also gave us explicit instructions on what she would like in the blocks so we couldn't go wrong. Wise girl! Kona Ash in the middle, colourful, text prints, one piece of solid bordering the centre in one of the blocks (for her to stamp our names on later on), and selvedges. Oh, and skinny bits of fabric, not fat.
So I drew, and then pulled fabrics.
I sewed, all day, whenever I had the chance. I trimmed lots, and I got there in the end.
I think I have fulfilled all Sarah's requests. I particularly like the Japanese selvedge.
My points were better than expected.
I'll gloss over the part that these are April blocks, not for May.
Now would someone please tell me if there is an easy way to get freezer paper out from blocks like these. Foundation paper piecing is not my forte at all. Which might be why I put these off for so long. But they are done and I am happy. Hope Sarah is too.
