My first Attic Window Blocks
I hesitate sewing these together, they look so perfect right now.
But, I need to practice! So, on we go.
I'm aiming for a 9 1/2" squared-up block.
......we have this layout,
This is closer to correct.
Light in the window,
Dark and Medium for the window panes.
Found a great layout for attic window blocks,
I like the fourth one from the top: attic window layouts
More practice: . It's almost a 9 1/2" square block. I decided to mark the 1/4" seam since my machine threw off my measurements. I did the triangles the way that the above-mentioned attic window link showed.
The triangles went together like a breeze! Then I almost ruined the corner with the iron - at the last second I remembered that you don't iron that bias corner, you just press. Stress.
