It's coming up to the 15th of the month again. I have to remember... I have to remember...
Last month, I completely forgot! I had my block done and everything, and the 15th came and went and I didn't even think about it. So, I had to pay a whole $6 for my "free" block. Darn!
Here is the freebie block for this month. Not too hard to do.
I did cheat a little bit. The instructions for those grey and white quarter square triangles were to cut out each individual triangle, then sew them together. I put a grey square together with a white square, and sewed on either side of the centre line, like I was making half square triangles. Then I cut it in half again. The result was two triangles with the grey on the wrong side, but I think it's fine as is.
Speaking of cheating, here's one of the companion blocks:
This one was another that had those wretched template wonky pinwheels. I am so tired of templates! I had to use some of my own fabric, but I did regular pinwheels instead. And those hearts and the white parts around them were also supposed to be templates, but I measured them out instead. I feel like I'm pulling something over on the designer of these blocks when I avoid their templates!
This one did use the template for the pinwheels.
It was really finicky to make. Those dark squares are 1/4 inch finished. But I like the plaid look.
I think this was last month's freebie block. They are all starting to run together now!
