Block number/name: J-1 “Josepha’s Jonquil”
Date completed: June 23, 2009
Number of pieces: 6
Notes on block: This is one of the few blocks where I decided on the fabric long before I made the block. Now that it’s done, I kind of wonder what I was thinking. It’s not bad, but I probably should have taken a second look before diving in (particularly with regards to the surrounding blocks). I also wish my lines were a little straighter. I seem to do alright with straight lines on larger pieces, but these small ones always seem to curve on me. I did them with freezer paper on top, and pressed the seam allowances before basting. Maybe next time I’ll try with the freezer paper on the bottom, see if that works better for me.
