Just in the nick of time, I managed to finish my block for the Global Scrap Bee. Adrienne at Chezzetcook Quilts' turn this month. She picked a Patchwork Wheel block (the tutorial is here at Don't call me Betsy), and some beautiful beach colours. I know it was supposed to be a scrap bee but I was missing some of the colours so I HAD to do a little fabric shopping!
At first I wasn't at all convinced it was going to turn out all right and it's harder making something for somebody else, isn't it? My biggest problem was definitely using inches! I realised I didn't have a ruler with inches on it. Luckily my mat has inches on one side so I managed to get the size right in the end!
Thank you Adrienne for introducing me to the Patchwork wheel! I'm now making one for myself in black and shades of grey. Will be showing it soon... I'm hooked!
Speaking of inches and centimeters, I would really like to thank Ayumi Takahashi who used both in her book "Patchwork, please!". You have no idea how much difference this makes for somebody who's working in centimeters not to have to convert the measurements every single step of a project. I think that if you want to sell a book (or pattern) all over the world, you should consider this.
