All I can say is in person this block really does look like a box of valentine candies. It took me a couple tries & in the end I decided to forgo the templates & cut the squares as measured & make the triangles the way I had been taught without exposed bias. You can guess from this what a stretched-out mess my first try was.
I cannot see myself making this block again, mostly because I don't even know what I am going to do with this one, but I am happy with the way it came out.
Welcome to our weekly block party! This is a group blog for sharing our successes and struggles with the week's chosen block. The challenge of completing the weekly block is open to everyone. The block and a link to its online instructions will be posted on Fridays. If you would like to join us, please follow the link to Hetty's blog, or leave a comment on a post indicating you'd like posting priviledges here. I'll be happy to add you as an author -- even if you are only doing some of the blocks :-)
Authors to this blog are asked to label each post with their name and the week# of the block represented by the post. This way we'll all be easily able to see all the blocks for each week as well as all the blocks by any one person. Thanks for your cooperation!
