Yesterday I decided that I would make the small project that accompanied the article and this was the result:
Home Maker blockIt isn’t quite finished yet as I still have to make some yo-yo’s as a frame around the binding. I’m really pleased with how it turned out and will use this method again as it has resulted in nice sharp points and nice curves. I think it would probably work well for some of the Dear Jane applique blocks too.
I also finished off a mug rug. When the house blocks arrived a week or so ago a little house also caught a ride. Beth had received them from Charity, and had then sent them to everyone that had participated in the quilty neighbourhood.
Beth had the nice idea that we would all make something to remind us of our friends in blogland. This will be a constant reminder for me as it is now sitting by my laptop with my mug of tea resting on it.
