i know, i know, it's still july
but sue our chief block-swapper is so organised she already gave out our partners
and hubby had the little human yesterday, so after i finished my study in the morning like a good girl :) i rewarded myself with an afternoon of crafting!!!
so here is cathy's block - she requested any block in red, black and white - i am putting it in the post tomorrow
it's a blackford's beauty block that i found at Quilter's Cache - such a great website!!!!
the only bit i am a bit confused with is the finished size. you can select on the website patterns for block sizes - handy when you are in a swap that is swapping 12" blocks (there is about 100000000 of them of that size on the site!).
but i have made 2 now - the churn dash block for sue last month and now this one. sue's turned out to be 12.5" (which would seem right as when it is sewn into a quilt, the finished block will be 12") but cathy's above is 12" now (so would be 11.5" when sewn into a quilt). so confusion reigns in my brain!
btw i checked with cathy and she graciously said she was happy with the block as is.....what a nice lady!! hopefully it works ok for her :)
pugs and kisses
