Time to do a blogpost an to tell........

...that I am going to change the pattern a little bit.
First to tell you that I still love to do this.
Than that my quilt is going to be a little bit bigger, making an extra row.
That includes 8 more postcards.
Klick on the pictures and they will get bigger.
My first design, a little bit in style, soon to be valentine, and love cats.
What are you using behind the stitchery?
I am using iron on pellon h630
It gives my stitchery a little bit more puff, and you don't see the threads behind it.
Because I have to make 4 more blocks, I have 4 blocks done now.
When I lay them side by side {this is not the final layout} in one row, I notice something I don't like that much.
This is like the book. block 2 /block1
This is my way block 2/block 1
Block 1 like in the book
Block 1 my way, left corner block turned 90° upside down.
I stitched it like in the book but when I had to stitch it to the block I turned it.
Now when block 2 and 1 are sewn together there is not that big rectangle.
Sorry, for my bad Englisch.
Pictures say more than a thousend words, I hope.
Picture upbove shows what I mean.
In the red cirkel the turned one in the yellow circle the way it looks in the book.
For me I prefer the red circle.
I am not telling you to do the same, only letting you know what I found and what I like more.
That is why my blue fabric is upside down, I am letting it stay that way.
I made an other mistake in one of the blocks and I am not sure if I change it.
Sorry for the long story.
Warm regards from Holland
