My February blocks (aka blocks 3 and 4) are ready for the trapezoids. One more than the other. The centre of the first block below is tricky. I tried appliqueing a circle over the centre but it didn't sit well. So I am leaving it at the moment and moving on.
I am working out a few tricks to streamline these blocks. The prep is quite time consuming and while quilting isn't a speed sport, some days I feel like sewing rather than tracing, cutting, ironing, re-cutting and then re-ironing. I am getting better at cutting many freezer paper pieces at once.
This week I heard from Emma who is also working on Circle Game. But Emma and her friend Janet are machine piecing the blocks. That would take some patience, a lot of perfect seams and perseverance!
It's been very warm this week. It's always like this in Auckland - January really average and when we go back to school summer kicks in for Feb and March. Currently, humidity is 95% ... it's got to rain soon!
