Block number/name: TR-4 “Bennington Cross”
Date completed: June 6, 2008
Number of pieces: 36
Notes on block: At last! Caught up! Now the trick is staying on top of new blocks. I’m really, really pleased with how this one turned out. Much more complicated than the first triangle, but I think it looks better. It was a little frustrating though because when I printed out the templates, the Dear Jane software treated the top section as two pieces—the triangle and then a V-shaped border. What the heck?! So I had to adjust the border piece to be two separate pieces. It’s not perfect (they don’t quite meet where they need to), but it should work fine.
I’m not sure how long this one took. It took a decent amount of time just to cut out all the pieces and prep it. Then I sewed on it Thursday evening for more than 4 hours, during the boy’s nap on Friday afternoon for a bit, and completed it Friday evening as we watched Bourne Ultimatum (which makes so much more sense now that I’ve seen it and the second one nearly back-to-back… I don’t know why it took me so long to work out the timing of the events in the two films, but it did).
