And they're off! My Do.Good Stitches blocks for August are on their way. They were to be made in some combination of pink, yellow and orange in a semi-scrappy way. Meaning, the prints were not all perfectly matched from one fabric line, but did coordinate within a "ring" of the granny. Easy peasy, right?
Although I have made many a granny block, I was never able to make these the requested 9 1/4 inches square. Mine were consistently smaller, even in Granny Mania. After several test blocks and the re-stitching of these at least 3 times over, I just had to hang my head and send them in at 8 3/4 inches square.
I like them. I like the prints. I like the color combo chosen. I'm just so sad they did not quite work out well. Here's hoping our mama can use them on the back or something. I did also send along lots of orange, yellow and pink fabrics if, in the end, she needs to re-make these blocks. I tried and there's nothing else I can do.
