Delilah: Sew Along with HeartSong Quilts Month 9

Delilah, Month 9–Sprinkled Delight, Make 9

Hello everyone, this month we are starting to make the 6” blocks.  We need nine Sprinkled Delight blocks, and they are small curves.

I am going to begin by saying, ARGH!

Okay, now that I got that out of my system, I can move on.

The first block, I pieced as Jen shows in the pattern.  Sadly, it came out lopsided.

After several attempts, I finally decided to piece the whole center, half the circle, and half the outside of the block.

It was easier for me to piece the larger curve in a longer section.

Finally, I appliqued the center circle over the center of the block.

I hope the purists will forgive me, but for me it is more important how it looks, not the process of getting there.  Especially when I would have had to un-sew as many times as I would have had to with this block.

I really enjoyed the fabric selection for these blocks:
