Here is a better photo of what the block for the Encrusted CQ class looks like. I just took this photo, the velvets look better than in the scan I had taken. I also just finished some foundations for more blocks. I made two more 8 inchers, six 6 inchers, and three 7 inchers! That way they are just waiting to be made into blocks.
I have a question, are you supposed to add a seam allowance to the square? Like for a 6 inch block would you make a 61/4 in square and piece it to that size and then sew around the edge to 6 inch? Or do you just make 6 inch, 6 inches and add extra fabric around? OR do they really shrink and a 6 inch block is really a 5 something inch finished block.
