Block 6 was designed by Happy Zombie, and is called You Are Here. I will admit, I was a little scared of this pattern, it looks really complicated and the instructions were sparse but I decided to tackle it today.
Pieces all cut out:
This one had quite a few pieces but actually came together quickly. Maybe too quickly though. I’m not sure what happened but a bunch of my blocks are kind of wonky and don’t even get me started on the center. I might have to redo it at the end if I have enough fabric, it is just too small. I must have measured wrong when I squared it up because I though it was correct. That being said here is my block 6 imperfections and all:
I also realized that I need to pay more attention to the direction of those directional prints because I wasn’t consistent. This is why I’m happy I’m doing this project, it’s teaching me to pay attention.
Here are all 6 blocks so far:
After I finished block 6 I decided it was time to tackle a mound of strips that needed to be cut for a gift I am working on. I finally finished! Here are all 216 strips, I’m exhausted.
I am so close to being done all the cutting for this quilt and I have finished sewing 25% of the blocks. By tomorrow I should only be sewing. This is my first bed-sized quilt, it’s only a twin but it’s so much bigger than what I have been doing.
I continued cutting in an attempt to finish it all today but once I got to this print and started getting dizzy I decided it was time to call it a day.
