Hetty's Heart

Here is my Patchy Heart. I posted this week's block without checking it first. When I realized that the little coloured squares are done with a template, I measured it and cut my fabric accordingly. The template measured 1 7/8 in. square. I cut my fabric scraps 1 7/8 square. That should have worked, but it didn't. I made the borders wider and then cut them down for the block to measure 10 1/2inches. I don't know if the pattern was out a bit or if it was my sewing machine. This old Jeans Machine does not do 1/4in. seam allowances very well.

Very cute block!! It may not match the original but you can call yours unique and all yours.
