A little while ago, we bought materials to make a blocking board. Yesterday, we made it.
MaterialsWadding, a cork board, gingham fabric, upholstery pins and the essential radio, hammer and chocolates.

WaddingLaying the board over the wadding.

TrimmingAfter two pins to semi secure the wadding, we decided to secure both layers at once. Liz had to hammer in all the pins. And do most of the rest of the work too but I was there to supervise. We trimmed the excess wadding and now have lots of little rectangles.


Back finishedThe back before so more trimming.

Front finishedLook how pretty!

It works
I chose the most fun coloured stripey material I could fins. The lines are approximately straight to help with straight lines when blocking.

Now that is brilliant! Brightly coloured topcat that has straight lines but not in an obvious way. Nice!bpzla
