Block Series - Modern Style - Block 10Mar 22, 2023
Well, this block... is my least favourite. I know! You didn't expect me to say that did you? Anyhow, here is some real talk, sometimes you lose, sometimes it doesn't work, but we have to move on. Could I go back and pick this all out and redo it, yeah, but will I? No. I think it was Angela Walters who originally said, "Done is better than perfect" and she is so right.
Here is a link to the YouTube Video:
And a link to the panel and pattern information:
Here is the concept piece for this block and gosh darn I wish I had listened to myself (lol).
For some reason, I had that little evil voice whispering in my ear "you can do it better than that, just do it a little differently". I listened and went off the path... Oh crap. If you watch the video you can tell that I am being a little erratic with how I'm quilting and making things much harder for myself. I really dislike the piano key with pearl chain, especially when I forgot to add in the dot-to-dot... You have to watch the video to truly appreciate the horror of it all. Funny how a simple little thing can suddenly not fit in anymore.
Ah well, time to move on. Here are some FAQs
The machine is an older Handi Quilter Avante with a stitch regulator.
I am using Glide Thread in the colour white.
The marking pen I use is a Kering blue water-soluble marker (any blue one will do).
I used my Rocket Ruler by Silly Moon Quilt Co. and #12 and #8 Curve from the Quilted Pineapple
