Two Block Quilt Workshop

Another enjoyable workshop at Hutton Buschel village hall. Beryl Frank from Guisborough as tutor. I chose a black/grey theme for this one. It consists of two different blocks - one 4 triangles and the other two side strips with four smaller inserts in the centre. I managed to do several blocks at the workshop and the rest yesterday. Beryl thought my fabric choice wasn't quite right and adjusted, so I need a bit more of the background fabric to finish off. It's all up to date as far as I can do it and hopefully I can get to the fabric shop soon to pick up the rest. The longest bit has been squaring off the blocks - should be 6.5" but the No 2 blocks came out slightly small so I've had to square them all off to 6.25" - bit of a boring job, but hopefully the end result will be worth it.

This is the sample quilt in progress made by the tutor, Beryl.
