It's a B......

This is a tale of sewing the 121st block of SBS...
 only 19 left;)

 The pieces of King's Stars have been strolling on the cutting board for three weeks now...
It's a tricky block! There is short concave / convex seams and Y-seams. First I tried to machine piece concave / convex seams, but it was hopeless. Then I had no other choice than piece them by hand... and because I had cutted the pieces badly, I met some big troubles even by hand. The points of the star are all different size and shape...

KRR! I have a hunch that this block will not be ... purfect!
 
I started  with the Y-seams bravely. But as long as time went by... also I started to feel more and more uncomfortable with the block. Especially the shape of the circle horrified me...

 ... as it horrified Fenix too...

You are just overacting, Fenix.
You can look now!
Maybe the H-10 is not so baaaaad....

I admit, you are right!

But I also know there is 139 other blocks in this quilt...
and I'm quite sure no one ever see that it's not purRfect, my dear Fenix!

And the main thing is
it's a BLOCK,
which also means I have found my sewing mojo;)

Happy Sewing Week to you all!!!!
Hopefully you enjoyed our short tale!

PS. We are really happy that we got new readers with comments. KIITOS;) PrettyMade, Teje & Elbichillo.

Perhaps Fenix could use some glasses. I think it looks quite fine.

Hello,

I was blog hoping, when I found your blog, to be fair, Fenix got my eye! 2 maine coon adopted me in their house, they are nice enought to let me play with fabrics!
So I was going through your blog enjoying Fenix and your work than I realise that you are in Finland.
Well, I'm on a plane from Paris to Rovaniemi on Monday!
My daughter is going to study there for 5 months, so we are on a road trip during 10 days to discover the country.
I wonder if you could give me adresses of shop, quilt shop. I'll take any advise.
Congrats for your work!
