 Sorry for the delay. A friend came round for drinks -

I I think the two different blues on the vertical were due to my printer toner being low and printing out different shades, so user error.

It was a clear and quick set of instructions. Well done.

Verrrrrry nice Fajita!

But errrmmmm ... Are the two horizontal strips meant to change halfway across?
Or were they sewn post drinkies????

So if someone would like to make a tut ..... Fajita?? Stitchintime??

@Iminei I’ve written up the method I used to get the even weave effect and @Fajita kindly offered to test it for me.

There are a few tweaks to make to the illustrations and then it will be ready to share with everyone.

Here's the link to the way I made my "even weave" version of May's block.

It is a PDF file and has been uploaded to Google Drives - if anyone has problems accessing it, just send me a message with your email and I will send the file to you as, unfortunately, attachments can't be sent in messages.

Thank you @StitchinTime  for going to the trouble of doing such a smart looking tutorial.  8)  I don't know how you do it.

I must admit, after seeing your 'properly' woven version, the original didn't look right any more...with apologies to @Iminei  No criticism intended of your beautiful work and much appreciated tutorials.  :*

I just need to decide on colours.

Actually much as the non woven weave jars my brain, it really doesn't matter in the lovely quilt that Iminei has made with the blocks, either because each block uses a different colour or because they are separated and the woven effect isn't across the whole quilt
Life's too short for ironing.

Another try at the even weave, this time using the correct colours.

My first attempt at a BOM!
I didn't read it properly and only sorted out 3 colours of strips. I like the result.
Thanks for all the hard work on the tutorials.
Now to see if I can get another done before school pick up time, we are off out to visit friends so for once I don't have to tidy up and return this room to a kitchen diner from sewing room state.

Oh, that's lovely. It's worked really well with just the three colours.
