Week 28 - Envelope Motif

Well this block started out being enjoyable, but I was disappointed at how much wastage there was (loads of little triangles) once I had cut it up. I thought I had enough of the dark red but discovered very quickly that I didn't. So, cutting a long story very short, I had to trim it down until I had enough to fit. My finished block was only 9 1/2" instead of the 12 1/2". And my points were lousy.
But its finished!!

Hey Ros,
dont be so hard on yourself, the wastage does get to you sometimes. Lovely colours. Jan x

I like the contrast between the dark floral and the pink fabric. As for the wastage, some blocks are just more wasteful than others, and then there are some that are very efficient when it comes to fabric use.
