Three more and ?? to go!!

I have managed to make another 3 Nearly Insane Blocks but haven’t had time to post them, so here I go..

Block 27 which was a little tricky. Will have to fudge those 1/4” seams when I add the sashing.

Next is Block 16

This was relatively easyNearly Insane

Then Block 4 Which I really enjoyed.

Nearly Insane

I am struggling along with Block 22 at the moment. My printer printed the pattern wrong ( I think it was my margins or something) and I didn’t realise until I had pieced 2 of the outside borders and got 7 flying geese instead of 6. Then I ran out of the outside fabric on the 4th border, so I did what Salinda Rupp would have had to do, and used a different fabric.

Ah well I had done too much to redo the borders. Will post the photo as soon as I’ve finished it.

Thanks for dropping by

I love them all, but especially block 16. The more different fabrics used, the better, I guess!

Your blocks look fabulous Sue, it's so nice to see all those older repro fabrics again - they're just precious!

Love the mixture of fabrics in block 4 especially.
