Block of the Month - April
« on: April 02, 2017, 11:25:13 AM »
Ladies I hope you will forgive me for this.
As you know life has been extremely busy and chaotic chez Imineis what with administrating the forum and Imselfs desire to decorate which has left me with little time or clean and clear space to construct a new tut for Aprils block.

Some of you from the old place will have seen this tut appear late last year but as it is a beautiful and relatively simple block to make I hope you will bear with the repetition and enjoy the tut.

For April's block may I present Iminei's Arrowhead

This block works best with a patterned fabric and a plainer bender.

As ever click on the first pic to make it full page and you should find the destructions on the right hand side.
If they are not there click on the Info icon at the top of the right hand side and they should appear.

This was the block I used for my very first completed quilt top, The Opus (which I finished it last year)



If you want to see that particular journey please feel free....

Can I cheat and have my original from last time in the BOMHOF?  Then I won't have any excuses not to get on with my UFOs that I am working my way through.

Now don't make me send you to the Headmaster Plosh!! :devil:

If you want to, of course you can! but its such a super block that comes together so easily I thought you might like to.

At the momment Im trying to stop myself making another one!!
I could nail Imself into the lounge ...and throw everything in the way out of the back door and just...S E W !!! Ah bliss !

But I shan't; I have too much work to do trying to get things tidyish and clean and I did sneak in a lil workshop yesterday (Ooopps Smilie) so have got rid of the worst of the itch.

Done mine. Thought I'd try orange for this one.



It's been photographed against a slab in the back garden, (in case you thought I'd got manky looking flooring in my house).

 I really like this block. It looks like there's such a lot to it...16 pieces!...but it's lovely to make.

Well I thought I would give this a go first BOM ever. I think I need to work on my ¼ " seams it has come out a bit smaller than the instructions - I spy a theme here my mystery quilt blocks were smaller as well 0_0

Nice, Didi.
I suppose there are a lot of seams in this one and you only need to lose a gnat's crochet on each one for it to add up.
I've got a ¼" foot for my Pfaff and it does a perfect scant ¼" seam which is lucky because I know not all of them do.
