So here it is, the halfway milestone itself... Block n. 50 (out of 100! Sometimes it’s worth to remember that!) for The Splendid Sampler™ is called “Flights of Fancy”, by Joanna Figueroa (Fig Tree & Co). It falls into the category of “lots-of-tiny-pieces” pieced block, and needed some seam-ripper to get matching points. However, my main problem with this one is that I’m not sure about the colour scheme, so I will revisit it at the end of the journey. I’m starting to run out of some prints, so I prefer to revisit blocks at the end with the overall picture and the overall remaining fabric.
In case I should do so, I must remind myself to accurately place the flip triangles, to carefully press (not iron) and to pin a lot! This kind of block needs anything but calm; with these little pieces any minor misplacement, stretching and/or fraying means a whole difference in the final result.
The pattern and link party are here.
