I've continued to follow her blog and the other day had another go, this time with her new tutorial - Spring Fling.
The block went together quite quickly and easily - even cutting the curves and sewing them was fine. Only once did I need to unpick one curve because when I came to trim it - it was more like a parallelogram than a square!
What I did notice (and this may have been one of the reasons for my early failure) is that the ruler and patterns are for right-handers. I'm left handed and sometimes I found I was holding the ruler quite awkwardly. The next time I use the ruler I'll put the pattern/pictures upside down - hopefully then it will be easier.
As I didn't have any of the orange/white fabric left and hardly any of the checked decided that this could be a Neonate quilt. Added a couple of borders to get it upto the required 27" size. Now to quilt it ...
