Before any assembly could begin, a LOT of trimming had to happen...
Trimmings make me happy...
The trimming took a long, long time. The freezer paper templates used for the batting and backing had to be trimmed down and ironed to each and every block. Yikes. Wish I could have done that as the blocks were finished, but I was too chicken to do so without the instructor's full explanation!
A weird angle, but the best light I managed to snag! All trimmed except the centre medallion. That's not done until the spokes are joined. I love it, but I want it off my design wall.
So much marking.... and pinning!
Sewing this strange tube was, well.... strange. But I followed the directions, so it's gotta work, right?
I'm linking up with Let's Bee Social @ Sew Fresh Quilts. The lovely Lorna had a slew of giveaways for the last 10 days. She's so generous!
P.S. This was one of my goals for Q2 of the 2016 Finish Along.
