Just made it........

.....by a whisker!



I haven't followed the setting for the blocks exactly. Because I'm using a jelly roll and a layer cake I've cut some of them differently. Also, this gorgeous fabric, Avignon, has some beautiful border type fabric that looks fabulous. I wanted to use them as they were, without cutting them into shorter blocks. The finished block size is the same, so it's not going to make a difference to the size of the quilt at the end.

I also cut all the pieces for the rest of the blocks and traced all the stitchery blocks this month too, so a little less to fuss about in May. Hopefully, I can get into the next block next week and be ahead for a change???

I'm loving seeing so many different colours and fabrics for this, some amazing blocks on here.........

Great use of that fabric,very fresh. Originally French Provance fabric called Soleiado, I think. I see it every day as I have sewn curtains, tablerunners for etc. for the kitchen and the lounge. I have loved it for years and years. Really looking forward to see your other blocks:-)
