The blocks are quite small with 7.25'' and there were lots of blocks to be made. I had already 29 done when I took the fabrics out yesterday. So just some more to be done! This can not be so hard! It was a gorgeous day so sit down an sew! What a surprise I had an other 11 blocks done in no time! So I was motivated today to finish the top .... sewing ... sewing ... sewing ..
Oh no! When I started the game arranging the blocks I was surprised how small the top is. I counted the blocks again and .... oh no! ... There are not as many as I wanted to have! Somehow it looked small but I was not in the mood to sit down an make more blocks! I wanted this top to be done TODAY!!! And I did it!
It is not as small as I thought! Actually I like the size. Arranging a border and this will be big enough to cuddle in wintertime. No more blocks! What a nice surprise.
And the best thing? Somehow it was much easier to match the seams than I thought. I am really happy how it turned out and she is as well. So now I have to add a border. Just framing or to I start with a white sashing before I add the border? What do you think?
We are now ready for an other International Day in school showing posters from Austria, eating 'Manner Schnitten' and 'Mozart Kugeln' and of course get dressed up like we are the stars from 'Sound of Music'. At the end of the day we will be singing again ...
