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.
