Delilah – Month 5

Hello it’s Justine here and welcome to Month 5 of the Delilah template club!

This month’s block is a really lovely one and quite simple really after the curves in month 4!However me being me, I really struggled with the instructions on this one!

The instructions for template number T19 say to cut out four and then four in reverse of two fabrics, I read that to mean cut two right side and two reverse in each of two fabrics. This is what I got:

I was totally confused and couldn’t work out what had happened. I messaged Lisa photo’s and she couldn’t work it out either, so I tried again and the same thing happened.

At this point I was really annoyed as I knew it would be something simple, so I got my hubby in to try and help me! He’s a joiner so maths and shape are really easy for him, guess what, he knew what I’d done without reading the instructions!

Basically I’d interpreted the instructions incorrectly. Here’s what I should have done, cut 4 right side in one fabric and four in reverse from the second fabric – simple right??!!

Here’s the third of the five required blocks for this month:

I’ll be making blocks four and five when we get more fabric into the box!

I don’t know about everyone else but I’m really loving this club, it’s challenging and enjoyable all at the same time. There are some amazing blocks on our instagram hashtag #simplysolidsdelilah

Thank you all for sharing!
