The sewing-onto-Vilene method worked very well, and enabled all the people to be successful and complete a block or two. It was heart-warming to see the sense of satisfaction and pride on the faces of these professional ladies, as they completed their first block. Two people didn't have time to finish a block, so have taken fabric to complete the block at home.
All agreed that it was both relaxing and satisfying (we all knew that already!) and said it would be nice to do it again one day.
I now have 16 blocks, with 2 more to come, so have been playing with arrangements. I can easily make more blocks to make enough for a Linus quilt. What about this radiating diamond?
Individual diamonds like this will be easier to extend, I suppose.
Flying geese look quite good.
This attempt at a pinwheel hasn't worked at all!
Let me know which arrangement you like the best and as soon as I get the extra blocks, I'll make it up.
