Stitch'n Time - Block Layout
Well, it was a surprise that I was happy with this first arrangement. I wanted to match the dark rectangles and have a diagonal going with the large squares. I had to shuffle which squares went on the outside edge, but other than that , it came together quite well. Next step is to stitch the blocks together.
The blocks are about 8 inches, four blocks across and 5 down. I doubt that I'll add a border, just straight to the binding.
If I am happy with the results, I'd like to make some up as gifts for Christmas. yes, I am already thinking ahead. Next time I want to try using a long 6mm round needle so i don't have to fuss with so many needles. Will see how this finishes first.
Any one else planning their Christmas projects at this time? Do you like to make small projects or one or two big ones per year?
