Please don't look too closely; some of the background fabric is the wrong side up.

Here’s my block. I knew I would be annoyed by the “uneven weave” effect so I modified it to give an “over and under” weave. I then had to use some partial seams as I knew that putting extra seams in the central strip would probably annoy me more than the weave effect. (I’m not normally this fussy about blocks.)

@StitchinTime  It's not just you - my head can't cope with partial weave either.  Ages ago I was trying to work out how to do a weave most efficiently but gave up.  I'll have another go.
Life's too short for ironing.

Mine neither.  I almost threw it away at the last moment because I thought I'd gone wrong.

That addendum would be great, if you could, @StitchinTime .

It is not so much of an addendum, more a completely different way of cutting and piecing the block. I tried to work out a way of subcutting larger pieces but couldn't get that to work and went back to basics.

I will put something together over the next few days as to how I did my block, but I am sure there are other ways to do this. If anyone else fancies working this out too, it would be nice to have a choice of methods.

My brain keeps telling me to cut the strips, weave them fully and then applique the whole thing to the background...    :|
I might look as though I'm talking to you, but inside my head I'm sewing.

Got mine done today.  I too would ideally prefer that the block wove better but I like how quick and straightforward this one is.

I've written a set of instructions for an "even weave" block which make perfect sense to me, but maybe only me!

Before I make them available to everyone, would anyone volunteer to read through them to see if they can follow them too? I'll send you a link to a pdf file to download from Google Drives and once the file is finalised, I will see if it can be added as an attachment.

@StitchinTime , I'll be happy to play guineapig if no one else applies for the job.  :meow:
