I do nest seams when I'm sewing and it usually works nine time out of ten on straight seams. However, a diagonal seam (as with a HST) comes along like a bully and always seems to push my nicely nested seams slightly out of alignment.

Four of those blocks plus a border (flying geese maybe?) all around would make a lovely 2 colour quilt to suit the Project Linus.
Brenda.  My machines are: Corona, a 1953 Singer 201K-3, Caroline, a 1940 Singer 201K-3, Thirza, 1949 Singer 221K, Azilia, 1957 Singer 201K-MK2 and Vera, a Husqvarna 350 SewEasy about 20 years old. Also Bernina 1150 overlocker and Elna 444 Coverstitcher.

Thanks for the suggestion @BrendaP but as the Project Linus quilt is supposed to be anonymous, I couldn't possibly comment any further  :ninja:

I'm back up to date!

I used the same patterned fabric as for January, which I realised is like 4 cats' faces, and whether they're cats or not, the two blocks go very well together!
I might look as though I'm talking to you, but inside my head I'm sewing.

@Acorn I've just gone back to look at your January block and there indeed could be four cats in it  :meow: :meow: :meow: :meow:
 
For April's block, I tend to see bats rather than cats when I see the photos (where are the bat emojis when you need them?).

I will be starting January's block tonight as the final part of my catch up (once I have worked out how to resize it to give 12" finished) and I wonder what layout I'll pick.

Oh yes - bats!  As cats are in my black books at the moment I'll embrace that totally!

Glad it's not just me, @StitchinTime , @Acorn.  When I first saw it, I thought, "Has Iminei made a Batman block?  Think I'll do mine in yellow and black.

Maybe with a KERPOW!!!! in the corner ???

Have finally got around to uploading the picture.





I played around with the idea of eyes but didn't find any I was happy with, so left it as it is.

A lovely easy block.

Thanks Iminei.

Sandra.
