I managed to do my blocks for May (and got caught up on the April ones too).
I made 3 of the blocks.
This is block 11.
I did it a bit differently and just used the striped fabric to make the package.
This block, 12, was a bit tricky for me to make. I had to wrap my head around how to do it. I like how it turned out though.
This block, 13, was my least favorite to make.
I, of course, charged ahead, thinking well I know how to make a log cabin block.
You need to READ the directions.
She tells you when to trim the block and to what size before you go on adding logs.
I made it and trimmed at the end. Leaving me with a gigantic block.
So what did I do?
I ripped it all apart and started over, trimming as was suggested as I went along.
Additionally, if I had to do it again, I would use aquas with the same value.
Then I could have turned them like how the white is in the photo below.
All in all though, it is finished and I can move on to the next ones.
I will likely procrastinate the June blocks until after the wedding shower in NC mid month.
Now it's your turn.
Have you finished your May (or any previous month's ) blocks?
