I made the first block for a new project this weekend.
I showed it to my husband Paul, and he told me that I needed to mitre the corners of the outer square. Unfortunately he is right, I was just being lazy.
Paul knew nothing about quilting before I met him four years ago- maybe I have taught him too well. For example, we were having a disagreement once because he didn’t like the way I had my PC set up (he is in IT). He said that to him it looked unattractive, like McTavishing with Cross Hatching over the top.
I first drafted this block several years back. It is eight inches, so the pieces are quite small.
I really liked the original eight inch block, but then I think I added too much that it lost some of it’s impact. So I always planned to make it again.
This was the final quilt.
