Been practising my blocks..... not entirely successfully, but I know what to do to correct things  -< Good job it's a small project as I've already discarded 2 blocks with abandon, not having to worry about running out of fabric........yet  :devil:
I'll make progress tomorrow when I'm not worn out from all the gardening I did today ........ sewing and test match tomorrow  ;)

Please Miss... (waves hand in air to attract attention) I has finished and wants to submit my entry to this very 'portant competition.. when you say send entry to Iminei@thesewing place.org.uk I cut and pasted and Mr Computer said no... There is a gap between sewing and place so I made the letters stand next to each other and it worked this time.

to everyone who is saying I am a goody goody  :angel: for doing this homework quickly I would like to explain I has a big curtain order arriving soon and then if I is really lucky we might go away for a few days afterwards ... sowryy

Why did I ever think this was a good idea?  So fiddly!

Could be worse.  At least it's only 8" wide.

Gorgeous colours, I love purples and pinks!  Still wondering whether to try this - I think the TSPB would be like Queen Victoria and not amused by my effort!!! :o

Well, the advantage, SG, is that it is very small.  I'm only going to do one more row of seminole and a couple of bridging strips and it will be 10". 

I'm sure TSPB would be delighted with your effort.

Sewingsue, the blue and green one is 2 1/2" and the chevron one is just over 4".

How are you doing those chevrons Pearl ???
They are excellent!

Thank you. 
I used jelly roll strips, yellow strips trimmed to 1 1/2" width and purple to 1 1/4", sewed the three strips together (yellow, purple, yellow), fold it in half lengthways,  line the 45 degree line with the bottom of the strips and cut 1 1/4" pieces along the length of the strips.  Because the fabric is folded, you get pieces with the purple line going both ways (see pic), so you just alternate them, sew them together and then trim off the top and bottom pointy bits. 

Yes, I know - clear as mud.
