Welcome to the second month of our Jen Kingwell Delilah BOM and we’ve curves and mitred corners ahead. Let’s not worry about that for the minute.
How did you find the drunkard paths? We’ve seen some really great pictures, here’s just a few from our group:
So onto this month, and here is our fabric selection we’re using and that should now be with those of you that opted for fabric.
Please READ the cutting instructions before you dive in. All I will say is bias will be your friend.
Jen’s instructions for pinning worked for me on the curves. I’m not a fan of pinning but it can help with curves. Some of you may find more pins to secure those bias edges will help.
Once you’ve pieced the four curved blocks we’ll be adding the border and the challenges just keep on coming. Next up is mitred corners. Honestly I had to have a couple of goes at these borders. I managed the mitred corners ok following Jens instructions and those dots. However I kept losing my points on the centre triangles and had a bit of a wavy edge.
Here’s my effort before a little unpicking, resewing and pressing solved that!
Good luck and remember to please do share them on our Facebook page or on our Instagram feed where you can find us as @SimplySolids
We’ll be using #simplysolidsdelilah so please use this one as well as all the other Delilah tags so we can all see each others in our gang.
