I have been machine sewing this weekend. Firstly, I have started making orange x blocks. At the moment they measure, randomly, 3 6/8". I might trim them back further so there is less natural showing and they look more orange.
I have a lot more orange ones to make, and a few black and beige ones. You can see what happens when you cut the orange strips too short in the centre block. Ooops.
Our Monday Modern Block Lotto this month is simply a colour slab with a white square near the centre. Since I had the oranges off the shelf and unfolded, I went with orange. You can see the yellow, blue, teal and purple slabs in our flickr pool.
Now it's back to the hand sewing and blocks 7 and 8 [April] of The Circle Game.
