A slight obsession with books

Reading and Fibrecrafts

Block two


I’ve done another block for the sampler quilt. This one is the block of the month in issue one of Love Patchwork and Quilting. I’m hoping to work my way through all the BOMs in the magazine, plus any others that take my fancy.

I used some of the cheap fabrics that I bought at Joanns. They’re fine for experimenting with.

This was my first attempt at Flying Geese so although the corners aren’t as well lined up as they could be, I’m quite happy with it. I did try to pay attention to getting the seams lined up and the points in the right place and they were definitely improving as I went along.

I’m looking at pieced block next. I’ve already printed off the templates but I may make another cushion first. The others look lonely on the sofa.
