Lois Goblinf January Blocks
Thank you very much for letting me join, and to Sophie for being so friendly and helpful. These are my nine blocks.
If it helps to get us to the five winner point, I can also throw in the brown tenth block to help make up the numbers (I realise this won’t get me an extra chance, but it might help get another winner’s prize together, and I really can’t see me using it, I’ve too many UFPs already).
1. Because I self-printed the WOW it doesn’t behave quite like a commercial fabric, anyone who wins these should iron them on the Wool Setting of their iron to avoid the ink blackening/ ‘burning’ or use a pressing cloth – the sateen’s got quite a high thread count so does iron quite well on a low heat, the issue is the ink. I’ve kept back a strip of the WOW and will send a bit to the winner(s) so they can test their iron heat on it rather than on the blocks themselves.
2 Because the brights are selfdyed I’ve washed a madeup block at 60 degrees and there was no colour bleed or fading (nor thankfully any falling apart!). It’s all brand new 100% cotton sateen from the same roll.
3. If you do win the blocks and have problems with the cloth, please let me know as it’s pretty much what I’ll be using all year, and I don’t want to produce something that people can’t use.
