Do you want to know how big to cut your squares? Take the finished size of the block....lets say 20", then divide it by 1.414....you will probably need the calculator for this part :-) . I get 14.14, then you add on 0.875 for the seam allowance and you come up with 15.019. I round it up to the nearest 1/4" as I like to cut things a little bigger, then square off if necessary.
I am going to surround the centre with "some kind" of spacer border (as yet undecided) and then add on a collection of English Paper Pieced blocks that I have had sitting about for a couple of years. That is all I have thought about so far as I have been a bit busy with a few other projects.
Pom Pom Tree is moving along as well. This is Block 10 of 12 blocks. The pattern is available on the Legend and Lace website for $4.95, as a digital pattern.
Next week I will be able to tell you about some exciting new products from Karen Kay Buckley. They are on the way here from the USA, and expected on Wednesday (fingers crossed!)
