Block piecing

Today I had a day off work, and finally I got to sew some. I'm almost finished reorganizing my sewing room, and today I had to take a break from that, and just sit down and do a block for the "Ring of Fire" quilt.The pieces for the block where already cut, so it was only for me to get to the piecing right away :o)
I think I am making the block right this time, I did some wrong turns on the ironing on the first two... But doing it this way, makes the midpoint spin, like the way it does when you are making the pinwheel blocks. Makes the block lie flat when its done. This is a wonderful quilt, which I have been wanting to make for such a long time. I have four of these blocks now, and I am thinking about making a wall quilt just to practice some freemotion quilting on it...
We'll see.

Today it is cold and raining outside, so I don't feel bad, sitting inside in my sewing room, enjoying some sewing :o) I am starting to look forward to the weekend, and for some more sewing then :o)

Happy sewing,
Laila

Flott blokk. det tar jo litt tid selv om alle lapper er klare til søm. Ha en flott kveld. Du må ikke rydde for mye, jeg har rydda så jeg ikke finner igjen ting jeg trenger. Leite er kjedelig.

Det var en fin blokk - liker hvordan de lyse firkantene lager en vridd sirkel ! Ser komplisert ut. Kos deg med søm :o)

Nydelig blokk, slike "sampler quilter" blir så flotte!

Gledar meg til å sjå alle blokkene dine samla. Eg har jo prøvd meg på dei sjølv, men fekk store problem, kanskje var eg ikkje nøyaktig nok då eg skar ut delane.

Veldig elegant blokk, og fine farger. Har stor tro på at den quilten blir fin, og at du får det moro når du skal quilte den!
