March 27th was the next block in line from where I left off last time. Mitered corners again.
I said 'Nope nope nope' and went with Y-seams instead. Not that y-seams are any easier or faster; it's just that they aren't mitered corners. Similar, but not the same.
I changed up the cutting to reflect my newly minted miter avoidance and set to work.
Phew. Fully assembled and not a miter in sight. (And that's another 6" block, by the way. I wouldn't want you to be too impressed by my piecing skills...)
Next was the block for the 28th. After finishing it, I though to myself that it seemed awfully familiar.
That was the block I jumped ahead to when I needed an easy one for making sure my seams were really 1/4" on my daughter's sewing machine. So now I have two of them. I can't see any possibility that this could be a bad thing.
For this block, I got the components sewed together and didn't really like what I had.
So I rotated all the 'geese' and ended up with this:
which I liked much better.
And there were the blocks for the 30 days of March.
Except March actually has 31 days.
So I scrambled to make that last 3" block.
And hurray hurray! I'm done with March.
My leader/ender block for all those little whatsits was this green plaid fellow that I'd kitted up to bring along, thinking Angela might pick green or pink for April's color. Nice springy colors, both, right?
I never saw orange coming somehow.
But I sure am happy to play with it! For tomorrow's post, I'll do just that. Stay tuned!
