@Bogwoppit I do like your original block in just three colours. The uneven weave is not as noticeable when fewer colours are used.

I might have to try the original block now, but then I’d end up 13 blocks at the end of the year.

I'm trying to decipher what it is that makes some less "head melty" than others and I think it's the ones with lower contrast. Maybe.  -<

I've done both versions this afternoon.  8)




This is a lovely block. It's quite satisfying how quickly it all comes together.




Very pleasing to see it properly woven, but it's a bit of a faff to cut and put it all together. Hat's off to StitchinTime   :toast:  for working all that out and giving us her tutorial.

You guys are AMAZING!

Can I just ask for enough leeway to get you all in the BOM HOF on our return to England (end of next week) as our days have become incredibly busy mainly involving food and drink ... let me just say, the Austrians know how to give hospitality!!!

I'm sure everyone wants you to make the most of your holiday @Iminei - I haven't even started May's BOM yet (or any other month's either  :S) but am looking forward to tackling it soon. :) You've already gone above and beyond the call of duty by posting it from the depths of your holiday caravan so you have brownie points accrued already. <3

Now picking up courage to try foundation paper piecing blocks and applique on the houses.  Loads of new stuff to learn.

@Bogwoppit - I tried @Iminei 's excellent tutorial on foundation paper piecing as I'd never done it before, and now - guess what? I'm totally hooked. I love it. <3

Have a go - I'm sure you'll enjoy it. :)

It does sound fun. Seen some minion designs that would be perfect Christmas presents if I get the hang of it.

Might be a while before life allows me to play quilting again. Boys need new shorts (including the grown up one) and I have some lawn waiting to make a blouse for me.
