pretty playtime quilts :: bow block

Blog-HeaderIMG_8552 (1024x681)Isn’t this a sweet block? This one came together quite a bit quicker than the Dragonfly block–simply because there were so many fewer pieces.

There was an interesting trimming technique to make the ties, and I confess that my points did not come out perfect. I even remade one of them to improve it, and it came out the same way. 😦 It must be operator error, because I’ve seen others that came out perfect. Oh well, I’m okay with slightly imperfect, so it stays.

But in the spirit of the constant quest to improve; I purchased a Clearly Perfect Angles sewing machine cling to continue to perfect my 1/4″ seam and make half square triangles a bit easier. I just installed it today (which was super quick and easy). So far so good, but I will report back after I’ve used it some more.
