Stay at Home Robin, Step 3



Here's what you all may have been waiting for (or not!) - step 3. This month's instruction is to add a strip, 10x3" (finished size) to the top of the two previous blocks. Alternatively, you could add it to the bottom. I can't show a photo of my virtual quilt because my big laptop is off being repaired (again, grrr.) and although I have the actual EQ file on a flash drive, my little laptop doesn't have EQ installed on it, so I can't get at it to take the snapshots (no CD drive on the little laptop - it's a netbook). So instead, I've just done my actual quilt a little earlier. I'm going to change the squished, wonky green circle - partly, it needs another colour in that spot, and partly, it's squished and wonky, but essentially, here's what I'm doing. Ta da!

Hi, thanks for letting me play. I'm learning about quilting * and* blogging so can I ask two questions?

Does finished size mean " the size it will be when we've finished joining stuff to it"? Of " when you've finished making this block"

Also your comment intro asks tat we don't set our settings to no reply. I've had people comment that I'm hard to reply to, but I can't find the setting that you refer to, can you tell me where to find it?

Thanks. Love the circles by the way:-)

Yours looks lovely, Kate - and I would have thought that the circle was artistically squished, not an error!
