May blocks from Krista
I haven’t played the lotto recently, but I just couldn’t resist this month’s block. I finally got around to it, after a reminder from Sophie’s post today. My first block came out the right size (just barely). And then I looked at it again and realized that I had swapped the colour on the star points, but not the center. So the block was wrong 🙁 So, I cut a new center for it’s alternate block, and tried again. This one worked much better.
I decided I knew what I was doing, and my blocks were coming out the right size, so I cut 8 more squares and sliced them up. Then I sewed the first one, and realized that nothing was going together correctly – I had messed up my sewing order this time. I did manage to make this block the right size, but the star is pretty wonky.
