First block finished

Finished the first block of my Blackford's Beauty today.

Ended up abandoning the block I started last week - too many mistakes in it to make it work. Second go was much better. Decided to start with the darker flashes - a bit more forgiving on the points that the bright yellow of my first attempt. Really love the way these solids look together - jewel-like, don't you think?

Made a start on block #2 this afternoon too.


  1. Hi Sandra, You are set as a no-reply blogger so I can't reply to your comment. Thank you for visiting. I spent some time looking around your blog and you do have some lovely knitting going on. I really do think that you should continue working on your Blackford's Beauty blocks - you will have a quilt top done in no time!

  2. Thanks Ellen. The Blackford's Beauty is a bit of a nightmare to work on if I'm honest. So many points to match up! I'm sure it will be lovely when it's finished though.
