A Block a Day: Day 1

I am making a quilt for my grandparents based on the scary William Morris jelly roll a few posts ago. I say “scary” but it really isn’t anymore as it’s all cut up into the correct pieces and ready to piece together. However I have under 3 weeks to finish the top so I can get it quilted professionally in time so I’m going to have to piece like a demon as there are 12 different blocks, plus sashing plus borders to do. So my aim is to do a block a day, and maybe two extra ones over the weekend.

Here’s the “Tulip” block I did last night before bed. I pressed it this morning whilst grumpy dog looked on wanting to go for his walk…
