I didn’t intend to jump ahead of the group but after putting the canvas on stretcher bars, 17×17, I realized I wasn’t going to be happy doing this as a travel piece. So I thought I would check out block number one and that led to block number two and three and four and I couldn’t stop myself!
There was a sense of discovery associated with each new block. Even the repeat areas created a sense of excitement as to how it would add to the overall design. I was a little disappointed with the bottom row. I found these blocks to be lazier than the earlier ones and block 44 is charted one thread off, some stitchers will be challenged finding a correct way to stitch this. I made a mistake early in the row and was one thread long……which gave me the correct number of threads for that block! Hope you all enjoy it as much as I did!
