There hasn’t been much time to sew during the last few days but I did complete the second block of the Loyal Union Sampler from the book by Jennifer Chiaverini. This one is called Abigail’s Swing.
It was a real challenge for me. I haven’t sewn Y seams before and the tiny pieces were very fiddly to work with in the machine. Are Y seams easier to sew by hand I wonder? Anyway, it isn’t perfect but I’m happy with my first effort. I might re-do this one when my skills improve as I make other blocks.
The block is 6.5 inches square and will be 6 inches square when sewn into the quilt.
It’s time to make a cuppa and read some of your lovely blogs now 🙂
