I was very excited to get the red fabrics and start making the hexagons for Cornelian. I love the colours and prints.
Helen has these great paper templates that you iron on to the fabric and then glue down the seam allowance The papers do not need to be removed, they will turn to soft fibres when the quilt is washed.
So I was gluing away and stitching them together to form the hexagon piece to be appliqued onto the stitched block. All sounding very simple so far.
Until I got to trying to get it all to fit together. It seems that I have misread the instructions and placed the corner designs in the wrong spot, again. Stupid me!! This is the second time I have done this, I am really starting to think I am bit of a dummy.
Is there anyone else out there in Blogland that is doing Cornelian? I would be very very very grateful for any tips on what I am reading wrong in the instructions. I have now tried making myself up a template on plastic to try and stop myself from messing up again.
On a happier note, I wanted show off some of the very nice fabrics I received in a birthday fat quarter swap I take part in. Now just to decide what to make with them. So much to choose from.
Off to try again and hope I can't possibly mess up another block......
Hoping I can post a success story very soon.
