This week’s block is found on page 10 and called Crazy Anne — I couldn’t agree more. I have never pieced a rectangle block like this and there were no instructions so I basted first. Everything looked OK until I put those rectangles into the block and now I see I have cut off the lower point of the rectangle. Grrrrr,.,.,….!
Here are my starting pieces.
When cutting the Z and AA pieces, you will end up with reversed triangles if your fabric is printed like mine. If it’s woven you will need to just cut 2 rectangles but if not, cut 4 rectangles and piece them all alike. Discard the 8 reversed (mirror images) that don’t match.
Here are those that I discarded.
And once again I have an ugly block! She used 15 different fabrics in her block and I tried to get by with some repeats.
Maybe this all feels so wrong because I do such a small step at a time.
I do not think you will be able to post on Country Threads Pinterest page since we no longer have that website. If you email it as an attachment to email@example.com or as a text to my phone 641-512-5188, I think I can post it to this blog. Anyone want to give that a try?
Very hot and humid here today but last night’s storm stayed to our north and east.
