Test Run

I decided that before I chop into the fabrics for DS's Surprise Quilt I should give the block I have in mind a trial run.  So here it is -

I don't know what it's called - do you?  Looks like a kind of double bow-tie, but I can't seem to find a name for it.  The calculations for this block weren't too taxing but I wasn't quite sure how to size the little corner triangles.  I think it all came out okay, even if it is just a little under 12.5" - well DS isn't going to measure them is he?

So now to take the ruler and rotary cuter to that lovely stack of Snorkel fabric!

BTW - in case you think I'm abandoning the Secret Quilt in favour of this Surprise Quilt - I'm pleased to say that the Secret Quilt has now been quilted and the binding is machine stitched on  - I just need some privacy to be able to bring the quilt out and finish the binding by hand.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. I do try to respond to every comment, but forgive me if occasionally time does not permit.
