Ho Ho Ho!

This is an Inklingo 12″ Waltzing Matilda test block. There are a couple of flaws. (Definitely operator error!) My Ho Ho Ho fabric was directional and it is bugging me that they are upside down! I wish I had noticed that before I finished the block because I could have turned the octagon around the other way. (Oh, well.) And I didn’t use a timer when I was ironing the TAP transfer and I scorched the right side a bit. Or it could be because the parchment paper was scorched and that may have affected the transfers. Using a better quality fabric for the octagon probably would have helped as well; but as I was just testing out my ideas, I used what I had on hand.

The block itself went together beautifully. Linda’s one page sewing guide is brilliant! I can’t wait to finish up the other 3 blocks and show you another new quilt plan for 2015.
