Twilight Hands: On-Point


The pattern works!

I didn't have to sew anything twice.

I had to square up the block because of a bit of shrinkage, but this is typical for a block with so many sections and so many little pieces.  (The pictured block is before I squared it up.)  I purposely made the block larger because knew I would square it up.

The grey I used is too dark.  Darn it!

I'm still going to use the block to test the pattern for the Reproduction quilt.

I'm overly critical of my own work

The block isn't that bad and someone won't notice the dark grey so much....

The pattern is difficult at 9" with too much detail.  I hate to give it up, though.  I like that the hand doesn't look like a blob holding an apple.
