Grandmother Choice Blocks 2 and 3
I have a nice start to my Grandmother`s Choice block of the week. You can find the posts Here. This is #2 Amethyst and was out last Sunday. I had trouble with my computers and printer so could not get it printed. Then I ended up drafting it myself. Worked out great.
Then block #3 Union Square was posted on Saturday. Maybe they will all be on Saturday as many of us sew on the weekend. I got it done and measured it. It was too big. I sewed a seam allowance to two deeper, and it is still to big. I cut all my Red and White square 2 1/2" not the 2 3/8". I am thinking I may redo this block over. I like the fabrics I used but it is still a large 1/4" larger. Just not happy with it.
Here is all three together. You can see I am using lots of the yellow.
