This is what I'm doing with the embroidered blocks. The first 2 rows are assembled. The lay out is from Vicki Purnell, a Tasmanian lady who loves to design quilts.

Anael. ....that is absolutely stunning!!!! Truly, that black makes it look so iridescent.....

Donna....read below before you pursue H7...

Kudo's to those who pieced this block without PP...OMGoodness, Anael! Thank you! However, this came out about 6 1/8 square even with my scant stitching...so....I'm going increase print size and re-do. Donna, I think if you magnify the PP to 105'ish, this should work out. If you want to wait for me to try it first, sit tight and I'll let you know. I thought about just sewing on a border but then I have about 5 reject blocks that I re-sewed because they were short and I may just use them on the backing...or pillow...or something... Anywhoo....here it is. I worked today and counseled late so I just had time to do this one....

Donna....I re-sewed H7 and it came out 6 1/2" On my printer, I enlarged Anael's PDF to 107% but yours may not come out the same so below is a measurement you can use to scale yours accurately.

in Unit G, the large square should measure 1 1/2"..when it does, you have accurate scale and you are off and running. When you enlarge, a couple of pieces may run off the page so beware you will likely have to make a second copy of those pieces... You are correct that the pattern is off 1/8" on each piece.

Oh so sorry the measurements aren't correct. I drew the block on an 8 " scale and printed it on a 6" scale. I have no idea what happened. Normally when I draw blocks in EQ the measurements are right. Maybe my printer is off? I have to admit, I didn't measure the paper pattern. Glad you could fix it Teen!! The block is beautiful!

Good Morning!! Not a problem, Anael! I'm so very grateful for PP and your time on it. Could be my printer that skewed the measurements. I'd much prefer to do PP twice than tackle the piecing. Believe me, you saved me time and anxiety. Lol!

Ladies, your blocks look great! I had issues with that H7 also, so will most likely redo. I went to son's house yesterday and picked up a box of scraps and a plastic tub of fabric, but have to go through about 30 boxes and/or tubs to find my sbs book. I decided with all of the patterns online and what I have on my laptop, along with my sbs chart, I can surely work on a few of these. You are all such inspiration! Anael, the embroidery quilt is gorgeous!!

one of the ways I deal with a block like that - I make my HST oversized when sewing, then trim down. And wouldn't you know - this is one of about three blocks of the group that ended up oversized about about an 1/8". With all those outside points, it can't be successfully trimmed down.

So I plan on using it in one of the cut off spots - or on the back .. .

I played with layout today.

This is what I'm planning - sort of with the idea of a small quilt laying on top of a larger one.



Wondering if it would look better with a narrow darker border on the inner quilt. The outer border will have a row of sashing, then I row of sky blue, and then this darker blue for the binding. So it would look like both quilts have the same binding.



I'm really not sure about cutting 16 blocks in half on the diagonal. Been considering making 16 setting triangles, especially since I found that handful of batik scraps in with my strings. Most of it is fabrics that I used up before starting this project so using them would bring even more variety into the quilt. I can use the extra blocks on the back, or for a baby quilt. If I replace them, I'll have 26 extra blocks.

Nearly Insane cuts all the setting blocks in half on the diagonal. It can be done Try one or two blocks and see if you like it. If not you won't have wasted a whole lot of blocks!

I like it better with the blue border.

I LOVE your bright blocks all together!!! And because you're not so into batiks I will PM you my address so once finished and quilted it can live with me..........
