Blocks and ... a new BOM....

I spent today hours (I don't even know, how many) with Cheryl's 1880's Sampler and block 15. When I first saw that block... I thought "Holy thud! I can't do that!" There is 72 pieces and the block size should be 5 1/2".

But I was brave and started to cut fabrics.
Deep purple is Bonnie Blue Basics from P. Barnes and pink J. Hendricksen's Miniatures.
The smallest squares were 3/4", the largest 1 3/8".

Without Cheryl's precise instructions and photos I had never done it - atleast this well. Especially this good hint helped me a lot! "When sewing the 4-patch together, the seam allowance on top will be facing away from you and the one on the bottom will be facing down. This helps the seam intersection lock together." First I didn't believe it, but it really worked. From now on I will always use it;)
Thanks Cheryl!

As a snack I prepared my new BOM
(I know I have too many projects and this is not on my January Fixed stars -list.
But When I ordered it in 2010, I decided to do it at once it comes.
It arrived yesterday;)




Anne has also a new free BOM here.
That Le Petite Ecole range is just so... inspiring...!!!

You are a brave girl to finish this complicated block, and you did well, it looks perfect. Your stitchery looks very nice and I like the words on it.

I must say, you are brave. I don't know if I could have done that block as well as you have executed it. That new BOM looks like fun.

You are brave to start on a block that has such small pieces. I don't know if I going to look at that free BOM. What if I like it, I want to tackle my UFO's not to start one more....Or should I have a peek.....
