Another pair and a small bag


Again the same block and two sizes. This is another block from the 'George coverlet' at the V&A in London.
I found it so exhilerating that the maker decided to make a block looking oval. It was challenging but fun to draft it. Here they are in all their unironed charm;) 


Finished size about 11 inches.



And about 5 inches.

I'm experimenting a bit in making small bags. I wanted to make a rounded bottom. It did not turn out as I had wanted, but I like it all the same. The experimenting goes on...


Made just about only from scraps:) Enjoy your Sunday

Your blocks are wonderful, Una. I can't imagine all that drafting and putting these blocks together so carefully. You are so good with them. Very pretty bag! I have a couple of these fabrics. It's fun to see them in there. Have a lovely week!
