In this house this block will forever be known as the "irony" block. The wisdom of the embroidery was not followed completely and my block is 1/2 inch too narrow. I had this great measuring tape fabric in my stash that was perfect for this block! To make it work where just the measuring tape showed without overlapI had to make it smaller than the pattern was written. I did get it to work, and remembered to add in for the top and bottom but completely had forgotten about the sides! Silly me!
The block was made using Moda Mochi linen ( yummy) and the beautiful tape measure that came with a scrap bundle as a bonus ( SCORE)! I pieced using Aurifil 50wt and the embroidery was using six strands of Aurifil floss.
