have completed another four more Spelling Bee blocks this week - the cutest of which is the puppy dog block – I say puppy because this is the smaller 6”
block (the book also includes a larger 12" block).
came the flower block – another quick and easy block and a touch of Patchsmith gingham.
Next was the globe bock which has three options – a one-piece globe, a patchwork globe and this
block requires you to trace the arc from the book onto the fabric – which is
quite hard to do unless you have a light box or you tear the page from the book
and tape it up to the window. Instead I
went over the arc with my thick black sharpie which made it show through the
background fabric well enough for me to trace over it.

the last block I made this week was the patchwork heart. A very easy block
have decided to start sashing the blocks.
With careful cutting I was able to cut all the coloured sashing strips
from one fat quarter (I folded the fat quarter into thirds and cut seventeen 1" wide strips to give me 51 sashing strips - two more than needed. Be warned though - there is no room for error!)
I shall add scrappy posts to the sashing but more about that next time .....
