I have completed 16 hoop blocks for my Metro Hoops project, using the Quick Curve Ruler by Sew Kind of Wonderful. I have to admit I earned a few more grey hairs when I started this project, but am happy to say I persevered and with the help of a smarter-than-me reader, licked the issues I was having with these blocks.
It makes me so happy to see them on the design wall! The fabric collection is so cheerful and bright, and I am satisfied with the way the corner squares are matching up. More than half of them are perfect, and the rest are just a thread or so off. It isn't noticible, even with the strong contrast between the dark brown and cream. Let's hope when I go to sew the blocks and rows together things will line up.
I didn't order enough brown corner square fabric, yet again, so am waiting for it to arrive so I can finish this project. I was thinking of making a total of 25 blocks, but am running out of steam. I may just make the quilt as shown in the pattern, for a total of 20 blocks, four across and five down. The finished size will be something like 60 x 75", which is a respectable sized quilt.
Here is another opportunity for custom quilting! What would be a cool design for those hoop centers?
