And the latest on the Just Takes 2

 This is not a block from the Just Takes 2 BOM, this is one that I made to replace one that I just did not like.
The second quarter of the quilt is now put together, for those that are also making this, it is my style, any blocks that I don't like I am removing and replacing with something else.
I also goofed badly with the big one bottom right of number two photo, I made it the wrong size, so it is now on point with a teeny border round it. The reason it got to be the wrong size, is totally my own fault, I am transferring (drawing) the patterns into EQ and using the rotary cutting instructions in there. I got the size wrong, but Hey it is my quilt, and it will be different to all the others.

This is what the second quarter looks like, there are also a few blocks left over which I thought was sort of strange.

I do not like the way everything is paper pieced, and the huge wastage of fabric.

This is the way it is supposed to look. Notice that the aeroplanes did not make it into mine either.

More red and white

I love to play with EQ,  I found the top block on the Patchwork times blog, Where Judy Laquidara is making  Nicole's Sofa quilt. I loved the symmetry of the block so had to have a play with it. I added  the second block, I had to draw that one myself, and this is what I came up with. At the moment I am so in love with red and white.
