Been so busy and once I had finished reports, well the first stage of reports - I decided to catch up on some sewing. May Craftsy BOM was first on the list.
First was to fussy cut a center for the block.
It is a log cabin block - and I love log cabin blocks.
This is the finished block - well......................
I wasn't so happy with it, so went back to the instructions.
Yes..instructions - and I read them incorrectly. So back to the sewing machine.
So this time I did it according to the instructions.
...and it looks much better.
The second May block was named a wonky log cabin.
I actually made the two blocks at the same time. I used each one as an anchor cloth the other.
This block is more like a crazy patch block and it would have been better if I had used more irregular shapes like a crazy patch.
I like it, but may re-do it later as a real crazy patch.
This is my anchor cloth. I have always used an anchor cloth and feel it helps with each end of the block pieces and tends to stop stitches falling out.
