As promised, here is my trial on the Herringbone block by Bijou Lovely. This block comes together really fast after you complete all the cutting. I was very adventures because I stacked all my fat quarters and then cut the stack into 2 1/2 in strips. I was done cutting very quickly! Then I sorted my stacks, then sowed each strip stack into two sets of three and 1 strip. After that, I began making one block at a time. I am really have fun with the block and hope you decide to give it a try and if you get a chance go check out Bijou Lovely. She has a wonderful blog and more tutorials to try over there also.
Let’s see the results:
- How long did it take? After cutting all the strips, piecing the block took about 10 minutes to complete one half of the herringbone.
- Was it easy to follow? It was not hard to follow but I really had to pay attention to the directions when making my 1 1/2 inch marks and the direction I needed the strips to go.
- Do you have any tips? I suggest you use a marking tool like I did. I used the Sewline Marking Pencil.
- Would you make it again? I will be making more of these blocks …I am going to make a quilt for my husband using Artitextures that is totally his size.;0)
Here is your dose of eye candy for the Herringbone block:
I will be back tomorrow posting the finshed quilt, hopefully! LOL…so, until next time, sew pretty!
