..true to form I made them slightly bigger to start with hoping to end up at the required size but these were way too big!! Cue the air turning blue....new larger squares were rapidly cut in different fabric and this is the result. Way too big and totally wrong in every aspect.
The fabrics don't have enough contrast to show off the mini half square triangles, the finished block is 2" too big and generally it just looks poo! Even on point it looks rubbish. Oh well, I might give him another chance when I've got over the inital disappointment.
Typically, even from her sick bed the Farmer's wife (aka Yvonne) has produced some fabulous blocks. Clearly hand-sewing is the way to go......huh,no chance!
I think I'm definitely destined to be the Farmer's occasional fling ;)
