Aren't they delicious? Easy to hand piece because all the sewing is along straight lines - no curves to complicate things. Perfect for fussy cutting in the case of interestingly-patterned fabrics.
I'm becoming quite addicted to these blocks because making them in cool colours is very relaxing. That's just as well, because my footy team had a disappointing (read: pathetic) start to the season last night when they lost the first game by 15 points. We keep the faith that next week will be better.
