FW91: Sarah & FW92: Sonnie
This week I only did one block. Not because I didn't want to make it, more because I don't need it. Block 91 Sarah feels very similar to block 57 Margaret and 58 Martha so it was easy for me to drop it. It is a favourite block design of mine but I have done whole quilts of sawtooth stars in the past, so I think I can forgo this one.
Block 92 Sonnie
There were lots of pieces in this block but compared to some of the y-seam blocks, this is pretty straightforward. All the seams nest nicely making it easy to sew together.
I'm not 100 percent certain the fabrics really go together but I really wanted to get more yellow and more of my special Denyse Schmidt fabrics in.
Everything meets up perfectly except this one bit. I am pretty happy though considering how many bits needed to line up. I did a lot of ironing and starching a long the way in order to get the fabric to lie as flat as possible.
The back is pretty neat too. I have definitely got better at this bit.
