I finished my Envy blocks for the February 2012 Nubees Swap! I really didn’t think I would get them done so quickly, but I started sewing last night and just couldn’t bring myself to stop until I was done. I’m really loving the look of the Envy block.
I had a little bit of trouble with the block initially – turns out the needle wasn’t centered in my sewing machine’s throat plate so I was sewing more than a quarter inch seam allowance without even realizing. I ended up over-compensating and so the blocks all had to be trimmed down, but this is both good an bad — bad is that I had an extra step to do to clean up the edges, but good is that my swapping partners will be receiving perfectly shaped 12 1/2″ blocks with perfect edges.
